The election is billed as a major test for Chief Minister Okram Ibobi, who is fighting the anti-incumbency wave as his party completes 15 years in power in the state.
Star campaigners like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh held multiple rallies for this phase. During campaigning, there were bitter exchanges between the Congress and the BJP over the ongoing economic blockade in the state and the Naga Peace Accord.
The Naga Peace Accord, also called the "framework agreement", was signed between the National Socialist Council of Nagalim-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM) and the Centre in August, 2015.
Manipur has seen economic blockade since November 1, 2016, leading to shortage of essential commodities, especially fuel, in the land-locked state.
