Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s Monday rally would be the first such major elections event in violence torn Manipur, as due to over 11 months long ethnic strife, no political party has so far organised any kind of election rally in the trouble-torn state.

The BJP has fielded state education minister Thounaojam Basanta Kumar Singh in Inner Manipur and extended support to the Naga People’s Front nominee K Timothy Zimik in the Outer Manipur seat, reserved for the tribals.
