Speaking during his campaign tour in the 23 Impur Assembly Constituency on 12 April, Mannen expressed regret over the Congress party’s assertions, stating, “The claim that NDPP is bowing down under BJP or washing its feet, these are all propaganda. The Congress should not have said that.”

The Advisor also shared CM Rio’s greetings to the constituents stating that he has not forgotten about the “Agri-Link” road.
