Shillong, Dec 6: United Democratic Party (UDP) supremo Metbah Lyngdoh on Tuesday said he has no plan to contest from two seats in the upcoming 2023 Assembly polls. “I will contest from one seat only. Why should I contest from two seats?” Lyngdoh asked while responding to a query on the matter.

The 3-time Mairang legislator said the idea of him contesting from two seats was fabricated by someone but there is nothing of that sort.

He was referring to reports alleging that he may also contest from Mawphlang constituency, which is represented by Eugeneson Lyngdoh, who had recently announced his decision not to join the 2023 fray.

The UDP chief said that the party already has a candidate from Mawphlang.

When asked about the allegations made by the party’s chief adviser Bindo M Lanong for denying him ticket from Nongkrem constituency, Lyngdoh however said, “We are not neglecting anyone. We have full respect for everyone but at the end of the day everybody has to work for the party.”

He, however, refused to comment on Bindo’s threat to float a new party and said, “What is written in the paper I will not come to a conclusion as far as that version is concerned. I have no comment.”

“We are working as a party as a team. The announcement of 32 candidates, this speaks that the party is united. We have differences but we sorted out within the party. That is the internal matter of the party. Anybody has the freedom to express anything within the party,” he said.

Meanwhile, the UDP president said that he doesn’t see anti-incumbency will affect the party’s prospects in 2023.
