The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has initiated a crowdfunding campaign for its candidate, Wanglem Konyak, who is contesting in the 43 Tapi AC for the bye-election.
According to NPCC President Supongmeren Jamir, this crowdfunding effort demonstrates the attachment and dedication of party members and supporters in the fight for justice. “Contributions are coming from all corners and districts, both in the form of prayers and small financial contributions,” he told this newspaper.
Emphasizing their confidence in the voters of 43 Tapi AC, the NPCC President asserted that the Congress party’s battle is not one of financial means but is rooted in their commitment to sincere development and upliftment for the grassroots constituents of Tapi AC. He highlighted the voters’ determination to select a leader who can effectively represent their rights in the Assembly.
“It’s not about fighting with money; it’s about fighting with a commitment to development,” he explained.
“Our voters are equally committed to choosing a mass leader who can advocate for their rights in the Assembly, and Wanglem Konyak is the right leader for this role. He is a true mass leader,” added Jamir, the NPCC President.
Wanglem will be competing against the ruling NDPP candidate Wangpang Konyak. It may be mentioned that Wangpang Konyak, 39, resigned as a Superintendent in the Directorate of New and Renewable Energy to contest the bye-election.
The polling for the bye-election will be held on 7 November and the results will be declared on 3 December.
