Imphal: Congress on Tuesday said it would
fight the coming elections in Manipur on the issues of
development and unity in the state.

Talking to reporters here, Manipur Pradesh Congress
Committee president Gaikhangam said tickets to party
candidates would be given to sitting MLAs who have no criminal
records and other allegations.

He said the pre-poll alliance of some parties was not
meant for any importance as it indicated that other political
parties were weak.

Gaikhangam said the party would campaign on two issues
of `development and unity` of Manipur in the forthcoming
elections and expressed hope that his party would get absolute
majority.
