SHILLONG, APR 18: Candidate of the United Democratic Party (UDP) Synshar Kupar Roy Lyngdoh on Tuesday filed his nominations.
Election to the Sohiong seat will be held on May 10 and counting on May 13.
Synshar was accompanied by UDP chief Metbah Lyngdoh, party leaders and supporters at the Deputy Commissioner’s office.
Speaking to media persons, Synshar said, “Today is a special day and also an acute moment of nostalgia remembering my uncle late HDR Lyngdoh who was here two months ago filing his nomination papers. He was a popular figure and a legend in this field. His death is a big loss to the family to the party to the state.”
“I am here as his replacement. I am here as a continuation of his work and his legacy,” he added.
He expressed confidence to win the Sohiong seat.
“One important thing the people of Sohiong constituency are praying everyday and wants to produce a law maker and not just a legislator, a legislator who will speak in the Assembly, a legislator who will voice out the people’s pain and grief. The youth are angry, people are watching. I am being watched as I speak. Serious bills and subjects are being moved in the Assembly like in the last session,” he said.
Synshar said, “We need intellectuals to speak and debate for better laws, for the betterment, for the future, for the security, for the safety and for the welfare of the people of the constituency and the state and also for ‘jaidbynriew’.”
