Imphal, Feb 19:

Just ahead of the Manipur Assembly election, pre-poll violence continues in Manipur as the National People’s Party (NPP) candidate in Manipur’s Andro constituency, L. Sanjoy Singh’s father Shamjai Singh was shot by miscreants yesterday night.
According to reports, the incident occurred yesterday at around 9:30 pm while the victim identified as Shamjai Singh was shot in his right shoulder by unknown miscreants while campaigning at Yaripok Yambem Leikai.
Meanwhile, NPP chief and Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma visited Singh at the hospital.
Taking to his Twitter handle the Meghalaya CM wrote, “Anguished that our candidate, Sh. L. Sanjoy Singh’s father, Sh. Shamjai Singh was shot & injured in a campaign programme at Yairipok Yambem Leikai. These incidents are tarnishing the sacred essence of our democracy. I urge ECI to see into these developments in Manipur.”
The actions they are taking are just unacceptable. And we have always believed in expressing ourselves in politics and democracy through voices and votes, but this sort of behaviour, this kind of action is simply wrong, Conrad added.
Notably, the elections in Manipur will be held on February 28 and March 5. Votes will be counted on March 10.
