    Inquiring on his motive towards contesting the election, he stated that developmental works are lacking in the constituency and his aim is for overall development including social upliftment of the underprivileged.
    “We need to make some effective changes in the society, the changes have to be tackled from the grassroots level and I want to be a catalyst in bringing about the change”,Ranjit said.
    Reacting to his competition, Ranjit stated that the Congress candidate is out of touch with the Konthoujam public and wouldn’t know better from worse. The Trinamool candidate, according to Ranjit is a power monger and has many weak points. “He has never worked at the grassroots level and is simply trying to buy votes with currency notes. In case they win the election by buying voters, the future of the Konthoujam constituency is bleak, but I know the public is with me this time”,he said.
