BJP Mandal Tamenglong on Wednesday welcomed and congratulated retired DFO Tamenglong who is also a new intending candidate in Tamenglong (ST) Huri Gonmei on becoming an active member of Bharatiya Janata Party, Manipur Pradesh.
A reception program organised by BJP Tamenglong Mandal was held in the morning at BJP Mandal office Tamenglong Glorylane Ward No V.
In his congratulatory note, BJP Tamenglong Mandal President Saul Kamei expressed his pleasure and congratulated Huri Gonmei.
He expressed hope that his leadership will uphold the integrity and strengthen the principles and ideologies of the party with full commitment and dedication in the future and wished him the best in the days to come.
He also presented a BJP cap and BJP muffler and also gave a congratulatory note to the new member Huri Gonmei.
Retired DFO Huri Gonmei said that he will contest by election or general election in the 53-Tamenglong seat.
Gonmei said that he has seen the great works by former leaders. However, his desire to work for the welfare of the people as a district forest officer is very limited.
Tamenglong district maybe economically backward but it has a dense forest where there are many resources which can be utilised for commercial and other livelihood purposes, he stated. Since 70-80 percent of the population is farmers, they need to arrange an alternative to shifting farming, he said.
He added that he will also focus and work for women empowerment and look into women’s grievances.
"Road connectivity is a common issue. From my heart, I want to do something. Lastly, Tamenglong is the oldest district, now living in the scientific age but till now, there is not a single science college. I will spearhead and work for the establishment of a science college in Tamenglong district headquarters,” Huri Gonmei said.
Tamenglong ADC members including Pr Guisinang, Santhuiyang Pamei, Kaniangmei, B Thambou also attended the reception programme of Huri Gonmei.
