The People’s Resurgence and Justice Alliance (PRJA), which got whistle as its party symbol, has already named five candidates. “Our party is growing fast and gaining public recognition. We are planning to field at least 10 candidates in our first electoral fight.
We chose this symbol because the whistle alerts people. Whistleblowers help expose wrongdoing,” PRJA convener Erendro Leichombam said.
Leichombam, 33, who is a Harvard alumnus, is contesting from Thangmeiband in Imphal West against Congress’s Kh Joykishan and BJP’s Jyotin Waikhom. Sharmila herself will take on chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh in Thoubal, one of the fastestgrowing constituencies of the state. The seat is set to witness a triangular fight as BJP has fielded Bashanta Singh, alias Bhim, from there.
