Rooster Crows in All Ukhrul Constituencies
Ukhrul, March 10 (This Politics): In a historic sweep ever witnessed in Manipur politics, the NPF has made a clean sweep in all three constituencies of Ukhrul district, Manipur.
Naga populated district of Manipur like Ukhrul has been governed partly by Congress and NPF in the recent decades. However, in the Manipur Poll of 2022, the NPF has managed to secure their position in all three constituencies which is unprecedented.
Ukhrul Central constituency plays a crucial role in the governance of Ukhrul, which has been ruled by Alfred Kangngam Arthur, a Congress leader, for the last five years. But the emergence of Ram Muivah a retired celebrated bureaucrat unseated him this time. It was thought impossible to unseat Alfred Kangngam Arthur taking into account his political background and charisma, however, the people of the said Constituency seem to have looked out for alternative leadership which seems to have found in Ram Muivah.
More attention and momentum of victory have been diverted to Ram Muivah for being a new face in politics who must defeat powerful and dynamic young leader Alfred Kangngam Arthur. While the two other NPF winners are incumbent MLA since 2017.
