K Onkholer, husband of boxing champion MC Mary Kom, will contest in the Manipur Assembly elections slated to be held next year. 

Onkholer himself announced the development on Saturday during a public meeting. 

He will contest in the upcoming Manipur Assembly elections from the Saikot constituency in Churachandpur district. 

“There are still many things that need to be done for the overall development of the constituency,” Onkholer said after announcing that he will contest the Manipur Assembly elections.

Although, Onkholer announced that he will contest in the upcoming Assembly elections, he is yet to make any kind of announcement on which party he is joining. 

There is high probability that Onkholer will contest the elections as an independent candidate. 

Reports also suggest that Onkholer is hoping for a BJP ticket to contest the elections. 

Senior Congress leader TN Haokip is the sitting MLA from the Saikot constituency in Manipur.
