Speaking to journalists today, Mirik DDUDF convener Tilak Prakash Rai said, “Since the DDUDF is receiving a warm response from people throughout the hills and expanding commendably, it is likely independent candidate Dr. Mahendra P Lama will bag 70 per cent of the votes in the LS polls.”

While reiterating that the DDUDF is seeking support from all political and apolitical organisations along with community bodies, Rai said nothing is certain about their support until their stance on the polls is clear.

He said the DDUDF is still awaiting the GJM’s response for a meeting. The organisation is also in touch with the hill TMC and is discussing the issue of son-of-the-soil candidate, added Rai.
