Mokokchung, Aug. 4 (EMN): Minister of PWD (Housing and Mechanical), Tongpang Ozukum, opined that election to the urban local bodies (ULB) should be allowed in places where it want to hold the polls. He, however, stated that it should not be enforced upon to those who do not want.

He stated this during the inaugural programme of Alempang ward authority office building in Mokokchung town on August 3.

“Options should be opened for those who want to hold the polls for ULB,” Tongpang said.

He stated that conducting ULB elections has lot of opportunities and developmental avenues, adding without ULB elections, governmental funding becomes restricted and that MLAs alone cannot do much.
