Speaking to media, the Chief Minister promised to the voters of Poklok-Kamrang to make their constituency as the ‘model and frontline constituency’ in the State.
“Even before my candidature was announced, I had much earlier announced that our SKM government will work more than what the previous government did in 25 years at Poklok-Kamrang. We will win the hearts of the people of Poklok-Kamrang and our government has already initiated many works here. We will make it a model and frontline constituency of the State,” said Golay.
