IMPHAL| Feb 15
In reaction to the violence that broke out between workers of BJP candidate in Keirao constituency, Lourembam Rameshor and NEIDP candidate in the constituency Th Gopen on February 13, Gopen said the incident could be avoided if the road show was organised with ECI permission.
Terming the incident as unfortunate during a press meet at his residence at Chanam Sandrok Mamang Leikai today, Gopen further asserted that the misunderstanding occurred because of the large number of vehicles in Rameshor’s convoy while returning after filing nomination paper on that day.
The NEIDP candidate further clarified that the incident occurred at Tarung corner point along Imphal-Waithou road which passes Langdum and the point is around a kilometre away from his residence.
He encountered the incident on the way when he was returning after filing nomination, he claimed.
