United Democratic party leader, Paul Lyngdoh, expressed confidence that Regional Democratic Alliance (RDA) candidate Robertjune Kharjahrin will win the Shillong parliamentary seat in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

He added that the party has started moving in the right direction.

Speaking to the media, Lyngdoh said, “The party has already started moving in the right direction. Various constituency committees are meeting and the candidate is touring various parts of the state already. He has visited West Khasi Hills in the past one week and we hope that we will be able to complete his taking part in various meetings within the prescribed time by the election commission.”

Lyngdoh further said, “Various issues have already been spelt out by our candidate when he was declared the official candidate. Those issues are very vital and we are fortunate that we have been able to select the the best possible issues which are relevant to the Lok Sabha. Since two major regional parties have come together so the aspirations of the regional parties will be a major focal point for the Lok Sabha elections.”

The Regional Democratic Alliance is an alliance of the United Democratic Party (UDP) and the Hill State People’s Democratic Party (HSPDP). They decided to field former Hynniewtrep Youth Council (HYC) President Robertjune Kharjahrin as the common candidate for the Shillong Parliamentary seat in December last year.

National People’s Party (NPP) named cabinet minister Ampareen Lyngdoh for the Shillong seat, the Voice of the People Party (VPP) has named Ricky A J Syngkon for the same. Meanwhile, Congress has cleared the name of Vincent H. Pala for the Shillong parliamentary seat ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha polls.
