Manipur Election Results 2017 Highlights: Congress Leads BJP In Inconclusive Results

Manipur election results 2017 updates: BJP will look to wrest control from Congress today.

Manipur election results 2017 remain inconclusive with neither the Congress nor the BJP able to get a majority - the ruling Congress managed 28 seats, 3 short of forming government in the north-eastern state. The BJP that won 21 seats - its best performance in the state in decades - gave a tough fight to Okram Ibobi Singh's 15-year-rule to rank second. 

The personal challenge to the Chief Minister had also come from debutante Irom Sharmila, the activist who last year ended an iconic 16-year long fast against alleged army excesses facilitated by the Armed Forces Special Powers Act or AFSPA. But a humiliating defeat was handed over to the 'Iron Lady' of Manipur with less than 100 votes to her tally.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had vowed to end an economic blockade led by the United Naga Front which has crippled the state's transport and deprived it of essential supplies. The BJP has accused the Congress of orchestrating the protests calling it "the handiwork of Chief Minister".


Here are the live updates of the Manipur assembly election results 2017:

Manipur election results 2017: After A Quick Debut And A Hard Defeat, Irom Sharmila Decides Politics Is Not For Her



Contesting against Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh in Thoubal, Irom Sharmila's fate in Manipur's elections was an early decision. The activist, who last year ended an iconic 16-year long fast against alleged army excesses facilitated by the Armed Forces Special Powers Act or AFSPA, could secure only 90 votes. "People did not accept me for who I am, I am fed up of politics, will retire in an ashram was for a while," said the disheartened political novice.

Only 90 vote for Irom Sharmila in Thoubal, less than those who opted for NOTA

Her fledgling party, PRJA (Peoples' Resurgence and Justice Alliance), had the support of the Left and Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party. But her claims had failed to convince a large section of people who earlier supported her.

Manipur Election Results 2017: Thoubal Gave Only 51 Votes To Irom Sharmila

Manipur is not happy with Irom Sharmila. The 'Iron Lady' who had taken on Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh, has lost with a record margin, polling only 51 votes. The three-time Chief Minister won comfortable with 15,000 votes. Ms Sharmila's chance of securing a seat in the 70-member assembly now rests on Khurai, the other seat from where she is contesting.
