Speaking to reporters, Hima Sohiong secretary Marchkupar Thabah said that Lyngdoh Bashemphang Thabah has been misusing the Hima’s funds for a very long time now.

“The Lyngdoh is unfit for his position, we have been demanding for his removal for very long now, as per our RTI findings we found that he has been misusing the Hima’s money for his personal gain,” said Thabah.
