Imphal, February 11: Reacting to the alleged propaganda by some persons in Konthoujam A/C that NPP stands for Naga People's Party, general secretary of the political outfit Ch Ayang Khongsai has clarified that NPP stands for National People's Party.

Speaking to reporters today at the quarters of MLA Thangminlien Kipgen, Ayang Khongsai informed that the party was set up in 1989. Stating that NPP is fielding five candidates in the 9th Assembly elections, Ayang Khonsai said that all of them are hopeful of victory.

Asserting that some people have been fuelling a rumour that NPP stands for Naga National Party, he rejected the rumour as baseless.

He said that the false propaganda was deliberately floated as part of their agenda to defeat NPP candidate in Konthoujam A/C Sarat in the elections.

He appealed to the people not to be carried away by such false propaganda.

K Sarat said that many of his supporters were beaten by some armed men threatening them not to cast votes in favour of NPP candidate as the party is a Naga party.

Further disclosing that his family members were also threatened yesterday night when he was away, Sarat appealed to the people to do justice after differentiating what is right and what is wrong.
