Your support will not go in vain — Longkumer
Dimapur, March 20 (EMN): Sharingain Longkumer, the People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) consensus candidate for the by-election to the 26 Aonglenden assembly constituency, officially started his election campaign on March 20.
The young Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) candidate thanked the PDA government for giving him the opportunity to represent the alliance as the consensus candidate for the by-election, informed an update received on Wednesday. He told the gathering that he has the responsibility to take forward and fulfil the dreams of the people in the area ‘while honouring the memory and unfinished dreams of late legislator Imtikumzuk Longkumer who was elected from the same party ticket in the previous Nagaland assembly election.’
Reminding that 26 Aonglenden is a blessed constituency which has produced many Naga political luminaries, Longkumer stated that if given a chance, he would sacrifice and dedicate his time for the uplift of the constituency as well as dedicate “tirelessly” for the welfare of the Nagas as a whole.
Delving on the importance of youth in nation-building, he said, as a young candidate he can understand the pulse of the young people and represent their zeal for want of change; while at the same time take knowledge from the elders and take necessary steps for the welfare of the constituency. He added the 26 Aonglenden by-election is important especially for the youth and encouraged them to bring change through unity and be a model for the neighbouring constituencies.
Longkumer “urged the parents and party workers to guide him and support him like their own son” so that he could work with a new vision for the youth and bring new changes to the constituency. He also affirmed that “their support will not go in vain” and he will be there for them in all times.
Declaring that he wanted to be the voice of the youth in the assembly, he urged everyone to work together in unity. He also informed that the upcoming “Lok Sabha seat is equally important and that it should not be neglected.”
