Opposition Democratic People's Alliance has agreed to field the president of the Federal Party of Manipur, L. Chandramani Singh, as a consensus candidate for the Inner Manipur parliamentary constituency in the upcoming elections, a DPA spokesman said today.

He said that the decision to field Singh candidate was taken in a meeting of the DPA constituents -- Federal Party of Manipur, Manipur People's Party, Manipur Nationalist Congress, Janata Dal (U) and Democratic Revolutionary People's Party -- here yesterday.

The DPA spokesman said that the consensus candidate was agreed upon after the withdrawal of the MPP candidate, Nimaichand Luwang, whose name had earlier been announced by his party as its candidate in the constituency.

The decision to set up a common candidate for the other Lok Sabha seat - Outer Manipur - as well was not yet taken, the DPA spokesman said.
