Addressing a press conference at Hotel Vivor, where MLAs of NDPP have been camping since the fractured verdict hit the state, Sarma confirmed that BJP will go with its pre-poll alliance partner to form the government under the chief ministership of Neiphiu Rio.
The NDPP received a big boost when the Election Commission gave its nod to the returning officer of the 6-Tenning constituency to declare its candidate Namri Nchang as the victor, raising the final tally of the party to 18.

Mr Rio has been the state Chief Minister from 2003 to May 2014 when he had shifted to the central politics as a Parliamentarian.

He also assured that there is no threat to Manipur government "because we have huge a huge majority". "When Shurhouzelie severed ties with BJP in Nagaland it did not affect NPF in Manipur because in the NPF constitution Manipur NPF is registered as a different party", the BJP leader informed while asserting that the BJP would continue ties with Manipur NPF.
The NPF party issued a press release on Monday. stating 'news headlines appearing in print and electronic media erroneously or maliciously portraying Nagaland Chief Minister TR Zeliang as desperately clinging on to the chair and refusing to resign has projected him in a very poor light'.
Commenting on Sarma's statement, the NPF said it was a "unilateral decision" of the BJP.
