19 CCPur candidates clear scrutiny

CHURACHANDPUR | 16 Feb

Nineteen candidates for six assembly constituencies in Churachandpur district cleared scrutiny today.

The candidates include Phungzathang Tonsing (National Peoples Party) and Hangkhanlian Valte (BJP).

After the scrutiny national NPP leader James Sangma said he was happy that the party candidate cleared the scrutiny, expressing his hope that NPP candidates would win.

He said NPP had secured three seats in 2002, six seats in 2007 and one in 1212 elections. This time the party is fielding 21 candidates. “NPP will play a major role in government formation in the state.

Tonsing said he was happy that he had been on the right track after failure of the government to resolve the issue arising out of the passing of three “anti-tribal” bills, passed by the state assembly.

He said the passing of the bills and failure of the government to resolve the bill issue and creation of seven new district prompted him to leave the Congress.

The veteran politician also spoke about the value of forgiving, referring to the burning of his house and vandalism of his late wife's tomb after the three bills were passed, saying he has forgiven all those involved in the arson and vandalism though he was hurt when his wife’s tomb was vandalised. The tomb is now repaired.

Former minister Hangkhanlian Valte said he wanted to contest from Thanlon constituency, but his constituency was allotted to Churachandpur constituency by the party leaders.

Hangkhanlian said that he was here to bring justice for the nine “martyrs,” to improve roads, provide drinking water and take up plans for rainwater harvest in the town.

He also promised dignified burial for the nine bodies, better educational facility, direct benefit of government schemes to the people, taping of resources available and support for potential sportspersons.

“I will stand for development and if there is the need more bifurcation of certain portions of districts will be done,” Hangkhanlian said expressing the hope that he will win.
