Imphal: National People’s Party Monday released its list of 20 candidates for 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly election with Deputy Chief Minister and state unit president Yumnam Joykumar Singh contesting from Uripok.
Except for Chandel A/C, all the remaining candidates are from the general category with former health minister and MLA L Jayantakumar contesting from Keishamthong and former MLA Konthoujam Sarat from Konthoujam.
Meghalaya Chief Minister and NPP national president Conrad Sangma led party Sunday declared its manifesto for the upcoming Assembly election.
The manifesto, titled ‘People’s Action Document 2022’ was released by Sangma virtually along with Y Joykumar Singh and NPP state working president Jayentakumar and Arunachal NPP president Mutchu Mithi.
Y Joykumar said the NPP will not form any pre poll alliance with any political party though it is a constituent of the N Biren Singh led government in Manipur.
The NPP is one of the major allies of the BJP-led Manipur government after Naga People’s Front (NPF), with both having four MLAs supporting the government initially. However, the NPP is left with only three MLAs after one of its legislators serving as a minister resigned from the party to join the BJP.
The NPP is the first party to release an election manifesto in the state where voting is due to be held in two phases on February 27 and March 3. With agency inputs
