Imphal, January 22: While asserting that Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will emerge as the single largest party in the 9th State Assembly election, NCP Manipur Pradesh president Radhabinod Koijam has categorically stated that his party would not join hands with non-secular parties like BJP to form a coalition Government.

Addressing an election meeting at Samurou Kangjeibung after the flag hoisting ceremony of its candidate for Wangoi A/C Salam Joy Singh, Radhabinod said since there is no possibility of any party getting absolute majority in the election and since NCP will emerge as the single largest party it has greater chances of forming the next Government along with other secular parties.

Central leaders of NCP also have no objection to joining hands with any secular parties in the formation of the next Government, he announced to the people.

However, Radhabinod hastened to add that NCP has not yet decided on pre-poll alliance with any political parties.

NCP would definitely like to go along with the political parties which would work for the common interest of both the hill and the valley people of Manipur, he added.

National secretary of NCP Youth Congress Conrad Sangma who addressed the meeting disclosed that the NCP plans to field 30 candidates in the upcoming State Assembly election.

Candidate of Wangoi A/C Salam Joy appealed to the people for casting their valuable vote in favour of the most suitable candidate who would bring about developmental change in Wangoi A/C.
