India TV-CNX Opinion Poll: Amid backlash for its inaction in the ongoing violence, the BJP-led NDA is likely to lose its seat in Manipur, if Lok Sabha elections are held today. The north-eastern state has been on the boil since May 3 after clashes between two ethnic groups - Meiteis and Kukis. Parliament's Monsoon session has also been witnessing a deadlock over the demand for a discussion on the Manipur situation. While the Opposition has been demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement on the issue, the government has been reiterating that it is ready for a discussion on the floor of the House.
