IMPHAL, Sept 22: Kh Joykishan led Trinamool, under the name of Manipur Pradesh Trinamool Congress will pitch their own candidate in the Hiyanglam by-election, said Thokchom Inaocha.
Th Inaocha, spokesperson of MPTC, in a press meet held today at the Manipur Press Club said three persons have applied for the party ticket for the upcoming election.
In this regard, the party president and office bearers have conducted several rounds of meetings, he said.
Inaocha continued that the name of the candidate for MPTC will be announced within three days’ time.
He alleged that the MLA of Andro Th Shyamkumar is using the Trinamool party election symbol, which is very unfortunate and he cannot claim the symbol.
He said that Shyamkumar has formed a new party called MPTCC and has given ticket to Dr Y Radheshyam.
The MPTC will take legal action against the general secretary of MPTCC P Premananda for claiming that Dr Radheshyam’s candidature has been given approval by the party high command, Mamata Bannerji.
Inaocha alleged that the claim is baseless, adding that Premananda had already been expelled from the MPTC.
The Hiyanglam Assembly Constitutuency by-poll will be conducted on October 17.
