Imphal, Oct 29: NPP leader and Meghalaya Power Minister James K Sangma today criticized leaders, who quit as MLAs after being elected for vested political gains, while campaigning for NPP candidate Loken Singh for Wangoi constituency in Manipur.

Wangoi is going for by-poll on November 7 as the elected Congress MLA had resigned to join BJP.

“For holding a by-election in a State, the Govt has to spend roughly about Rs. 1 cr for election expenditure,  which poses a huge financial burden on the State,” Sangma said, while making a significant remark that because of politician with ulterior motive, ‘the purpose of by-election is defeated’.

He said that money which are spend on holding by-elections could have been used for development and welfare activities. “It is unnecessary that Govt have to now spend money for by-election, while the funds could have been used to make roads, schools and other welfare projects for the people,” he said.

Clearly trying to hit out at opposition BJP candidate, who had won election in Congress ticket and had shifted his loyalty to BJP.  Lukhoi Singh had won from Congress ticket in 2017 State Assembly Election by defeating NPP candidate Loken Singh with a margin of just 36 votes.

Appealing people to vote for NPP candidate Loken Singh, he said, “The mood is clear in Wangoi. We want the people to come out in large numbers and vote for our candidate, who will ensure that the voice of Wangoi is well represented”.

“Loken is the right candidate and he will work to ensure development in Wangi constituency,” he added while terming BJP candidate as a ‘failed leader’ who has shifted his loyalty for political vendetta.
