Imphal, February 19: Expressing unhappiness over the reported flip-flop stand of the United Naga Council (UNC) on selecting its candidates, the Anal Women Union or ASR has dismissed the claim of the UNC for alleged modification of the �Consensus Candidates� as null and void published in local newspapers.

It said that on January 19 the name of L.Benjamin had been declared as the UNC�s consensus candidate for the 41 Chandel A/C of which the UNC had dispatched the letter UNC vide/letter/19/1/2007. The Anal Women Union further stated that a common symbol chosen by UNC for each �consensus candidate� is a candle and accordingly L.Benjamin had been allotted a candle as his symbol by the Election Commission and the candidate with the candle symbol is campaigning in full swing for winning the election.

�At such a stage, there is no question of changing or modifying in the list of consensus candidates� names arise,� charged the Anal Women Union, adding, �UNC may intend to change their stand from time to time but the mind of the voters cannot be changed,� quipped the Anal Women Union statement.
