The National People’s Party (NPP) has said that since its election time parties will be doing a lot of mudslinging while also asserting that people coming from outside the state were not expected to know the state situation.
NPP spokesperson Ampareen Lyngdoh was responding to the opposition Congress claim, which referred to the NPP as a ‘Non Performing Party’ as it has failed on all fronts.
“The new Congress will take some time to mature and argue beyond the nomenclature of the NPP,” Lyngdoh said.
AICC media coordinator Mathew Anthony has also termed the NPP’s People’s Document as a “manifesto of lies”.
On the Congress’ spokesperson terming the NPP’s manifesto as lies, she said that the “vision document” is a factual representation of schemes, achievements and future plans of the party.
The NPP’s spokesperson also said that to term the document as a lie is again a limited access to knowledge of things happening on the ground.
According to Lyngdoh, someone flying in overnight from another state would not be familiar with on-goings in the state.
However, the NPP spokesperson said that a lie needs to be substantiated.
“It would be in the fitness of things to simply ignore the immature and superficial comments of such individuals,” Lyngdoh added.
