Imphal: A senior member of the Manipur unit of
Trinamool Congress Wednesday said he would approach the party`s central leadership for what he termed `irregular functioning`
of state`s party chief Kim Gangte, a former MP.
Speaking to mediapersons here, K Rabei, an executive member
of the party, said he was seeking to contest the election
under the party ticket from Wangoi assembly constituency in
Imphal West district in the January 28 Manipur assembly elections.
He said he has been an active member of the party since its
formation in the state but the party`s state unit president,
Gangte has ignored his name and was trying to give the ticket
to a new entrant, O Lukhoi.
State Trinamool Congress would announce the first list of
candidates very soon, party sources said adding that the name
of Rabei, a senior member of the party, was not there.
Rabei said he would take up the matter with the party`s
central leaderships describing the non-inclusion of his name
in the first list as `unjustifiable.`
The Trinamool Congress has one seat, Konthoujam in West
District, in the 60-member house.
