Wisdom of election commission must prevail on Trinamool`s election symbol: Kim Gangte


IMPHAL, September 28: Former MP Kim Gangte, who is a member of the AITC has today said that the matter of allotting election symbol to the two groups claiming to be the original Trinamool Congress in the State should be left to the wisdom of election commission.

Kim Gangte was speaking to the media during a press meet held this evening at the Manipur Press Club.

She said that the imbroglio between the two groups has created confusion among the people, particularly the voters of Hiyanglam, with the by-election already announced on October 17.

She alleged the AITC for creating division among the party members.

The main cause of the conflict is due to communication breakdown between the party leaders of AITC and the members of Trinamool Congress Manipur, she added.

Kim Gangte continued that she has no information about any AITC annual general meeting, though she is also a leader of the party in the State.

She maintained that she was appointed president of MPTC by Mamata Banerjee, adding that she has no idea about MPTCC. The last Assembly election was fought under the MPTC banner, which was approved by AITC general secretary, Mukul Roy.

Kim Gangte also added that she has no knowledge whether she has been replaced from the president`™s post or not till date, and in this regard, she has not received any letter from the party high command.
