New Delhi [India], May 16 (ANI): Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Thursday said the demands of BJP's ally Naga People's Front (NPF) will be taken up senior party leaders after the Lok Sabha elections conclude.

Speaking to ANI, Singh said, "There was an understanding between NPF and BJP during the formation of government in the state. But due to some unavoidable circumstances, the demands of NPF leaders are pending. These will be taken up by senior party leaders in the state after the Lok Sabha elections are over."

On being asked about the possibility of a reshuffle in the Manipur government, Singh said, "Right now I cannot say anything about the Manipur government. We are in election mood now. I am here in Delhi for election campaign and I am positive that BJP is coming back in the centre. Modiji is coming back again."

In the polls conducted last year for the 60-member Manipur state assembly, INC got 28 seats, BJP (21 seats), NPF (4 seats), NPP (4 seats), AITC (1 seat), Independent (1 seat) and LJP (1 seat).

Seven-phase elections in the country, which began on April 11, will conclude on May 19. Counting of votes will take place on May 23. (ANI)
