Konthoujam election will be beacon light for Trinamool: Kim Gangte


    IMPHAL, Jan 30: Expressing firm commitment to usher the state to a new era of anti-corruption and development, the president of Manipur Pradesh Trinamool Congress and former MP Kim Gangte stated that Konthoujam bye-election will serve as a beacon light for the Trinamool Congress to develop the state right from the grass-root level.
    The party is committed to bring equal development in both hill and valley areas for maintaining peace and communal harmony in the state, she said.
    The top priorities of the Trinamool Congress being development of proper road and communication system, education and health in every nook and corner of the state, the national leaders of the Party will be pressurized to do the needful action. However, the Party strongly opposes the prevailing corrupt practices of the Congress Party which is an ally at the Centre, Kim asserted.
    She stated that the Trinamool Congress chief Mamta Banerjee is also very much concerned about the issues of the state and she is trying her best to bring utmost development in the state right from the grass-root level.
    The bye-election of Konthoujam will give a new impetus to the party to establish itself firmly in the state. The battle is not just for the people of Konthoujam a/c but for the whole state. The diktat of the Congress Party has always made the common people suffer like anything and so the victory of the Trinamool Congress will be the victory of the people of Manipur against corruption and injustice under the Congress government, Kim noted.
    She also expressed dismay over biasness of the state officials who forcibly pulled off the party’s flags from the vehicles of Trinamool supporters parked inside the office complex of DC Imphal West during the scrutiny process of Konthoujam bye-election yesterday. However, the Congress Party’s flags were spared from pulling off by the officials, Kim added.
    The state president further maintained that the Congress Party has been ruling only with muscle power and money power without having any consideration for the development and welfare of the people of the state.
    Kim is extremely positive of beating the Congress rival in the Konthoujam bye-election so as to begin a new era of development and constructive changes in the state.
    Meanwhile, the election observer of Trinamool Congress, Kanwar Deep Singh will arrive in Imphal on February 1 to oversee the development of Konthoujam bye-election scheduled on February 14. Kunwar Singh is an MP of Rajya Sabha and also the in-charge for North-East.
    The Trinamool candidate K. Sarat is contesting the election against Congress candidate Dr. S. Ranjan and independent candidate K. Ranjit with political support from MPP, BJP and other non-Congress parties.
    Konthoujam bye-election is very crucial for the new comer Trinamool for acquiring people’s trust and confidence as a part of their campaign for the next general election of 2012.
