Talking to media persons at Diengpassoh during a public meeting, he said that the BJP with just few weeks more for the election would not be able to make much impact in the state
“In fact people are leaning towards Congress.. I am not saying this because I am a Congress candidate but this is a fact,” he said.
On being asked about the money power, he said that the other parties had their means but in Nongthymmai constituency, money power had not played a major role in elections.
