The Candidate Declaration cum Dedicatory Programme of Thungchanbemo Lotha, Congress candidate for Wokha Town Council Ward No.12 (PWD/Zuvotong/CC) was held on Tuesday at candidate’s residence at Zuvotong Colony, Wokha. The programme was attended by Member of Parliament (Lok Sabha) and President of Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) S Supongmeren Jamir.

In his speech, Jamir highlighted that for over 25 years, the Congress Party had been striving to demonstrate its commitment to serving the people of Nagaland. However, he acknowledged that there has been a significant gap in fully realising this aspiration. Jamir expressed gratitude for the recent opportunity, gained through popular support, to serve the people effectively and connect with grassroots communities. Emphasising the importance of grassroots engagement, he underscored that the Urban Local Body elections serve as a crucial step for reaching out to these communities.

The MP also outlined three key agendas that the Congress candidate intends to pursue for the benefit of the wards’ residents. These include Youth Empowerment, aiming to provide coaching for UPSC, NPSC, and NSSB exams to three to five students annually over five years, under the candidate’s initiative. Secondly, Jamir highlighted the establishment of Self Help Groups, and thirdly, the creation of a Welfare Fund to bring unity among the three Colonies within the ward.

Further, Jamir assured that once the Congress candidate is elected to power in the ULB election, the candidate will have his back to work together for Wokha citizens and urged the voters to vote for the Congress candidate.

Thungchanbemo Lotha, the INC candidate, expressed gratitude to the gathered for their support and urged voters to place full confidence in his ability to implement beneficial ideas for their wards. He emphasised that the Congress party would not undertake unnecessary projects, stating, “We will never build bridges where there is no river.”

Lotha assured voters that if elected, his priorities would include improving infrastructure such as drainage systems, retaining walls, and other essential renovations. He also pledged to address sanitation issues and ensure basic social necessities such as household water pipeline connections. Additionally, he proposed opening an IT library within the ward accessible to all residents. He then appealed the voters from his ward to vote for him.
