By Oken Jeet Sandham - Asian Tribune

Kohima, 24 April, (NEPS): The Congress today expressed confidence that they would win the ensuing crucial Nagaland general elections by a landslide victory and were optimistic they would form the next Congress government in the state.

Speaking to the press here at his official residence on Monday, Leader of Opposition I Imkong said they expected to win 40 to 45 seats in the coming elections and further disclosed that they would field candidates in all the 60 constituencies in the state.

Asked what would be the Congress’ slogan in the ensuing election in the state, Imkong said a draft committee for the election manifesto has already been formed and that it would be out next month.

Asked if he foresaw any violence in the coming general elections in the State, Imkong expressed trust on the Election Commission that the latter would provide sufficient security at the time of election. “We hope there would be a free and fair election,” he said and added “Of course, the coming election would not be like the last one.”

He also disclosed that the Congress would not have any pre-poll alliance in the coming election in the state.
