Tynsong said that as of now it is too early to say whom will his party send as there are many equally qualified contenders. If the party wish to send him, he is more than ready to take up the opportunity.

The election to the Rajya Sabha will be held on April this year when Congress MP, Kong Wansuk Syiem’s time will expire after a six year term.
