Informing here on Wednesday, L S Lyngdoh, general secretary of M:17-SSO alleged the double standard maintained by the party leaders following media reports that another candidate was also vying for the party ticket, the party unit in Mawlai sought clarification from the party heads as he asserted that Teibor Pathaw was projected as party candidate from Mawlai constituency.

He said, “In a letter to us, the central body leaders said that the party ticket is undecided and that the allotment of ticket is monitored by Central Election Committee (CEC) of the party.”

Meanwhile, Pathaw claimed that he was being assured by PN Syiem, who is proposed to be the PDF leader, that the PDF ticket for Mawlai will go to Pathaw.

Pathaw, while folding the flag of PDF muttered, “It is a party without any foundation.”
