Hindu Mythology says Bhramastra is one of the most powerful weapons that can put an end to the entire world. This powerful weapon is a threat to the enemy as well as to the entire humanity. So the Hindu Mythology defines the character of those having it as Man of self respect, who were committed to save the people from the hands of the destroyers.
The battle ground for the upcoming 11th Manipur Legisaltive Assembly Election is all set. Legislative Assembly election of the state will be conducted along with four other states – Punjab, Goa, Uttarkhand and Uttar Pradesh. Political analysts are expecting the election to be held around February middle week or last week.  Even as nobody can ascertain the exact date of the legislative election, one thing which is sure is that 11th Manipur Legislative Assembly election will be held before early weeks of March. After all the ECI had yesterday called on for all Political party meeting by issuing notification.
Time and again Imphal Times had opines that in Manipur, there seems to be no room for a third political party or forum in the upcoming election. It is going to be a tough fight between the congress and the BJP.
Unlike Delhi where newly emerged APP threw out the ruling Congress government, political spectrum in the state of Manipur is different. In a state like Manipur, where majority of the people think that “Nation comes after family”, it is always the ruling political party which is always in the forefront of getting more seats. But this time, as BJP is in power at the center, it will be an easy task for the party to return back to power.
Understanding the situation, Okram Ibobi Singh led congress government had also set out their political strategy since April this year. Around 600 posts at various government department in addition to the recruitment of 2000 plus police constable has been started. Leave aside the legality, it’s an open secret on why so much recruitment at a time election is just some few months away.
On the other hand many incomplete structures which were left at public spare untouched and unnoticed were hurriedly inaugurated.
For most of the candidates who will go with the Chief Minister Okram Ibobi, grass root level works to get more voters is almost completed.
The BJP too, is lagging behind from the Congress. As it is in power at the center, Union Ministers, State Ministers and other leaders who can influence the Union government have been frequented. People in the state too, knowing the fact that BJP is the only alternative political party to the Congress have doing everything to win the voters.
Now, as BJP stands as the lone political rival Congress Party still worried as fulfilling each and every voter is an impossible task. And what is more worried is the larger politics that BJP might play.
With multiple problems of various ethnic base issues, it is likely that the Congress may win at some constituencies in valley districts, with the prevailing crisis being faced by the people chances are less for the Congress, to win at the 20 constituencies at Hill district unless it use the one left instrument “Brahmastra”.
Yeah, it is about declaration of the Sadar Hill district as a full revenue district. If it is done Congress may face the music at some 6 to 8 assembly constituencies but it will be far more easy to get more seats in the remaining 52 Assembly constituencies.
“Brahmastra” or  “No-Brahmastra” it remains to the wisdom of Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh who will decide the fate of Congress party in Manipur.
