Expressing concern in this regard, UDP chief Metbah Lyngdoh said that he was expecting women candidates to come forward and apply for party tickets.

“However, so far we don’t have any woman candidate (apply for party ticket),” he said.

Stating that the party will have to look into this aspect before announcing the second list of candidates, Lyngdoh said, “I want women to come forward and apply for the party.”
