SHILLONG, APR 3: United Democratic Party chief Metbah Lyngdoh on Monday said his party is confident to win the Sohiong constituency.
The adjourned poll to Sohiong will be held on May 10.
Speaking to reporters, Lyngdoh said, “We are very confident that this time even from Sohiong constituency after the adjourned poll was announced by the election commission and now adjournment date has been fixed by the election commission so we will move ahead and till now whatever information that I have and whatever inputs that I have and received from the ground that things are going in favour of our candidate.”
The UDP is fielding (L) HDR Lyngdoh’s nephew Synsharlang Kupar Lyngdoh as its official candidate.
Lyngdoh said that definitely the sympathy will be to the advantage of the party as most of the people of Sohiong want to show gratefulness to late HDR Lyngdoh for his contribution to the constituency as a former MLA.
On the common minimum programme, Metbah said the party will take up with the chief minister Conrad K Sangma once he comes back as of now he is out of station. According to him, the CM is also still busy with completing the process of the different appointments and notifications.
