Imphal, August 08 2011:
With reference to the news item under the heading 'SHDDC finally gives the nod, talk with Govt today,' and dated August 8, 2011, the report on a former candidate of Saitu AC informing the Government that the demand to upgrade Sadar Hills to a district was launched with active support of two groups under an agreement with the Government meant a former candidate.
The report was not aimed at singling out any particular individual and hence the term 'former candidate' which can be anyone contesting the election in the said Assembly Constituency from 1972 till 2007 .
We urge the readers not to be misled into politicising the issue or play into the hands of anyone with an axe to grind.
