The defence minister was addressing election campaigns of Y Khemchand, Speaker at Singjamei and Karam Shyam, BJP candidate for Langthabal at Langthabal on Monday. Singh said he was happy to see the traditions of supporters of a candidate bringing food, vegetables, sweets as a sign of support.

โ€œThe whole world now respects India and we are showing the world that we can strike anywhere even beyond our territory to those who attack our country,โ€ he added.

Good governance and development were seen after the arrival of the BJP-led government, Singh said.

The defence minister said he wants Manipur and the north east to be developed as a tourist hub of the country.

Speaker Y Khemchand said the BJP won just 21 seats in the last elections and had to take support from other political parties. It was difficult to run a government with so many coalition partners so getting an absolute majority is a must to provide good administration, he added.
