Achievements and continuing works of MP Dr. Lorho S. Pfoze at a Glance


EKHON | UKHRUL: Many seem to question the performance of the sitting outer Manipur MP Dr. Lorho S. Pfoze. Yet he has confidently emerged as a strong candidate of the Naga Peoples’ Front (NPF) for the forthcoming 18th Lok Sabha election to complete his unfinished works and much more.

“Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and ethnic conflict prevailing in Manipur, I could not complete important works for my constituency and the region in many areas in this one term tenure. Also, I was advised informally by my friends in the alliance partner BJP not to speak on the Manipur issue in the house during the debate on the no-confidence motion moved by the opposition. I am hopeful to be able to fulfil my vision as I gain the trust of the people and the leaders” said Dr. Lorho S. Pfoze.
