Stating that BJP and Congress Party are the two faces of the same coin, State secretary of Communist Party of India, Manipur L. Sotinkumar said that people of the state know how clean are the BJP and Congress Candidates contesting the Upcoming Lok Sabha Poll.
Blame game on media every day will not be able to woo the voters as they knew the reality, Sotin added.
Speaking to media persons at Irabot Bhawan,  Sotinkumar said that all the rights of being a Member of Parliament will be strapped away if BJP or Congress party win the upcoming 17th Lok Sabha election as both their candidates will be disqualified in the near future because of the charges leveled against them.
He said that most of the candidates are crorepati and also added that the Outer Parliamentary Constituency candidate for Congress was allegedly charged with banking default. He added that if he won all the land and other resources will be looted by him.
Highlighting the qualities of their candidate Dr. Nara, Sotin said that no such charges and allegations can be found on their candidate. He further claimed that their party candidate Dr.M Nara will surely win the upcoming election as per the mandate given by the people during campaigns.

He further appealed the people of the state to vote with integrity of their choices but not because of few pennies and parties or else the state will be in grave danger increasing more issues that the people are now facing.
