"I also would not interfere in any contract work and transfer and posting of Government employees," he said and added, "Let the deserving people get the contract works."
Nishikant then asserted that he would gladly accept any punishment given by the people if the promises are disregarded after winning the election.
Stating that many are speaking ill of the assurance he has given, Nishikant added that he however, is confident of winning the election irrespective of all the blabbers.
"My first priority will be on providing drinking water to every household and infrastructure development in Keishamthong AC after election," Nishikant said and continued that he would also keep the Local Area Development Fund transparent, apart from depositing his salary to it.
