PDF to pit PBM son against HDR
SHILLONG: The People’s Democratic Front (PDF) will field Judah JM Wahlang, the son of Rev. PBM Basaiawmoit, against sitting MLA and Home Minister HDR Lyngdoh from Sohiong constituency.
The party has welcomed Wahlang and elected office bearers to its Sohiong Zonal Committee on Thursday.
Others who were present at the meeting were PDF State Executive Committee Ivanlumlang Marbaniang, James Ban Basaiawmoit, MDC of Mawkhar-Pynthorumkhrah constituency, general secretary of PDF Auspicious Lyngdoh and PDF candidate from Mylliem Hamlet Dohling.
Addressing the crowd, Wahlang said, “Sohiong constituency cannot be changed unless the public are firm about the decision to bring a change.”
He added that it would make no difference to him contesting the Sohiong constituency even if he is a resident of Mawpat as he argued that many MLAs contest from a different
constituency although they are not residents of the constituency.
The newly formed party has already started its preparations for the 2018 Assembly elections and has announced a number of candidates to contest the elections.
