Congress is running in the pole position with BJP running a close second in the Manipur Assembly polls, as counting of votes progresses. According to IANS, out of 39 constituencies for which trends were available, the Congress was leading in 17, and the BJP in 14, while the Left was leading in four at 12.45 pm.
In the prestigious Thoubal constituency, Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh defeated his nearest BJP rival Leitanthem Basanta Singh and social activist Irom Sharmila, who received around 90 votes.
The dismal defeat of Irom Sharmila in Manipur Assembly election with only 90 votes in her hand marks the reality that the issue of repealing Afspa is hijacked by both the national parties Indian National Congress and Bharatiya Janata party.
Irom Sharmila’s defeat is seen in the light of both the national parties taking up the issue of Afspa with much importance in their manifestos.
