DIMAPUR, OCTOBER 22: Minister for Planning & Coordination, Land Revenue and Parliamentary Affairs, Neiba Kronu today assured and pledged that the ruling Government would do all it can to help and assist the PDA consensus candidate, Lirimong Sangtam to represent the 60 Pungro-Kiphire Assembly constituency in Nagaland Legislative Assembly.
Addressing a public meeting at Anatonger village as part of bye-election campaign, the Minister urged and called upon the people of the District not to miss this golden opportunity while it has been handed to them as PDA’s official candidate, adding that the ruling Government is in need of such young and smart leader to usher in development in the area as Kiphire is the ‘Aspirational District’ where lots of natural resources and minerals can be explored and tapped for the benefit of the District.

Yet, he said, Lirimong has the ruling Government as his rightful parent.
Stating that BJP is the largest political party which has many programmes and schemes to be implemented, he said the state needs a good and smart leader to represent them in the Assembly.
