KOHIMA, Feb 10 (NEPS): Senior DAN Minister and NPF candidate of 42 Wakching Assembly Constituency MC Konyak said the proposed visit to ENPO areas by the so-called high profile Congress leaders from Delhi would not have any impact whatsoever on the ENPO areas. “The people are with us and I am confident that they will repose their mandate in the NPF,” the NPF candidate of 42 Wakching Assembly constituency told North East Press Service over phone from Wakching Sunday.
Criticizing the attitudes of the Congress leaders, Konyak, who is in straight fight with Independent Candidate YM Yolow, said the Prime Minister of this country in their last 9 years rule had not even visited Nagaland once and their visiting to the State at the time of elections had clearly exposed that they were not concerned for the people of this most backward areas in particular and State in general.
AICC President Sonia Gandhi had already visited Mokokchung and Dimapur and addressed the election rallies on February 7. Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and AICC Vice President Rahul Gandhi are among others who will be visiting the State including ENPO areas for election rallies. Their dates visiting are yet to be confirmed.
“It is very unfortunate that these leaders including Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh seem to be interested only in elections and not the people,” he pointed out saying such high profile political shows by Congress leaders would neither have any impact on ENPO areas nor other parts of the State.”
“The Nagas are not foolish anymore and they will give befitting reply this time,” he said adding, “I am optimistic that at least 6 NPFs out of total 9 in Mon district will emerge victorious and will cross double digit in the ENPO areas. We will get absolute majority and forming the next government.”
