Speaking about the recent political debacle of the Congress party, Ibobi Singh said, “Congress workers should not be disheartened with the current state of the party as India is a democratic country and political parties have ups and down in a democracy. Our duty is to continue serving the people whether we are in power or not.”

On the sidelines of the remembrance event of Nehru’s 131st birth anniversary, Singh also wished everyone a peaceful and prosperous Diwali.

“Let the bond between the siblings be strengthened this Ningol Chakouba,” he added.
