The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will also ‘completely’ support the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP), the ruling party in Nagaland, in the lone Lok Sabha seat in the state

The BJP on Friday announced extending its support to the ruling National People’s Party (NPP) in Meghalaya in both the Lok Sabha seats in the state and the Naga People’s Front (NPF) in one of the two parliamentary constituencies in Manipur in the 2024 general election.

In the state’s sole Lok Sabha seat, the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP), now in power in Nagaland, will also receive backing from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The BJP in-charge for the northeastern region, Sambit Patra, announced X.

“As per the instructions of BJP president J P Nadda ji, I am pleased to inform that BJP will extend its support to Lok Sabha candidates of NPP in both the seats of Meghalaya (Shillong and Tura), to NPF in the Outer Manipur constituency and NDPP in Nagaland in the ensuing parliamentary elections 2024,” Patra said in a post on the microblogging platform.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the saffron party waged an unsuccessful campaign for one seat in Manipur and two seats in Meghalaya. In 2019, the BJP gave the NPF and the NDPP support in the seats thereby winning. The NPP had won one of the two seats in Meghalaya.

The political fallout from the ethnic conflicts in Manipur, according to sources, may have led the BJP to back these regional parties in these predominantly Christian constituencies. These state parties have frequently backed the central administration led by the BJP.

Along with it, BJP national general secretary Vinod Tawde announced that the saffron party is supporting the NCP (Ajit Pawar) candidate from Lakshadweep.

Reassuring about their win, he posted on microblogging site, X and said that together NDA will win.
