AS Peter Wungayung, Chief of Hungpung announced the unconditional support for Yangmi Khapai, former president of Tangkhul Katamnao Saklong (TKS) on behalf of the whole village and invoked a blessing for the success in the election. He encouraged Yangmi Khapai to work with sincerity for the welfare and development of the Tangkhul community. He also called all the village units like Dungrei Public Organization (DPO), Lower Hungpung Public Organization (LHPO), etc to accord full support for the candidate saying that since the inception of the TNL, Hungpung has yet to take the leadership in the apex body and felt that this is the right time for the village to take the seat.
