Manipur Governor Najma Hepetullah is likely to invite the BJP leaders on Monday in Manipur to form the government.

The BJP legislators and their supporters numbering 32 in the 60 member house called on the governor on Sunday to formally stake claim.

Deputy Chief Minister Gaikhangam Gangmei said: "Being the single largest party the Congress should be given the first chance to form the government."

But the BJP General Secretaries, Ram Madhav, Prahlad Singh Patel and the Assam Finance Minister Hemanta Biswa Sarma claimed that the party enjoys support of 32 MLAs.

BJP secured 21 seats, Naga People's Front, the National People's Front have 4 MLAs each and AITC, LJP and a Independent having one seat each extended support to the BJP.

Chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh was pinning his hope on the support of the 4 MLAs of the NPP. However the NPP members were present at the Raj Bhavan on Sunday and said that they were supporting the BJP.
