In the Campaign, a large number of electors participated from different walks of life supporting him and his Party.

He will take up various initiatives for the welfare of the youths if voted to power. He said that the youths will be given various jobs through entrepreneurship so that they can be self-reliant. Without maintaining the youth’s self-reliant, there will not be any development in the Constituency. So his main focus is to the youths, he asserted. Women of the Constituency are very skillful in various activities so, taking up initiatives for them is also a must, he added.
Romen further said that NPP is the only Political Party which gives thrust to the youths and women, so he chose such Party to fulfil his desire to perform the activities. He has been taking up various activities for the welfare of the people of the Constituency for the last seven years. He has the intention to do further but cannot because of being a lame man, if voted to power he can do everything he desires to do for the youths and women and also for the aged as well, he assured.
He further said that the people of Singjamei Assembly Constituency are all intellectuals, so the electors cannot be wooed with money and muscle power, only needs to know the true mindsets of the Candidate. They will cast their franchise to the Candidate having the mindset of serving people only from the bottom of his heart. So the Elections of 2022 in Singjamei Assembly Constituency will be the role model of every constituency, he assured.

Manipur Peace and Integrity (MAPI) Council expressed serious concern over the rising Covid-19 pandemic in the state. Many have been affected and many are having taught life trying to protect themselves from the pandemic. Almost all people have been facing extreme hard times due to the pandemic.
MAPI Council said that the 2nd wave is turning more dangerous than the 1st wave. It seems that the authority is facing extreme hardship in this second wave. Somehow the number of positive cases and fatalities rate has been decreased but the pandemic still is not under control.
The impact of the Covid -19 is making the lives of daily wage earners and those who live on borrowed money, either in the form of loan or through mutual agreement.
The problem is that borrowers have to pay high interest rate notwithstanding with the fact that the curfew or the lockdown has been open only a few days back. This only worsened the economic conditions of those people living on hand to mouth but it makes more to the money lenders.
The MAPI Council appealed to the money lenders and private as well as the government bank to stop collecting interest. Reports say that the money lenders are collecting 10%, 18%, 20% or 30% as interest rate. This is a serious matter and the Government of Manipur should intervene and relieved the daily wage earner.
