Imphal May 24,
Independent candidate for the 17th Lok Sabha election, RK. Somorendro popularly known as Kaiku to the people of the state seems to have more confidence with the result of his election.
“I loss in the election but it is my moral victory”, Kaiku said adding that he will keep focusing on politics to contest in the next term as MP candidate.
First timer inner MP candidate Kaiku stood fourth in the election by obtaining 81634 votes.
Thanking the voters Kaiku in a press meet held today at Manipur Press Club said that even though he lost the election it was a moral victory for him as the votes he gets were genuine votes.
He said that many people were still on the right side as shown by the sum total of votes obtained by him and Dr Nara and assured that he doesn’t buy votes using money power.
Kaiku stressed that he has some loop holes in the election for being an independent candidate and added such loop holes will not be there if he had contested from a political party.
He desired to be in a political party and have favoured more in regional ones though he doesn’t decide which political party to join.
Kaiku further added that he will still continue with his acting career also.
