By Ranjana Thapa Magar, KATHMANDU:- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has sent another letter to the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) on Friday. The latest letter sent by the ministry has further confused the 10th general convention of NRNA.
The ministry has again instructed the association in a second letter to postpone the 10th general convention of the NRNA, which is scheduled to be held from October 23 to 25. The general secretary of the association, Dr. According to Hemraj Sharma, the controversy has arisen after the ministry gave a new interpretation contrary to the constitution on who will elect 65 percent of the general convention.
According to Secretary-General Dr. Hem Raj Sharma, Schedule 6 (a) of the Legislature clearly stipulates that “persons on the priority list (ie eligible persons in the 65 percent) shall register their names in the pre-election system of the National Coordinating Council”. Despite this, the ministry has issued a circular stating that 65 percent of the delegates to the General Convention will be elected according to the previous practice as it is not mentioned in the constitution. Sharma said.
Sharma said that the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that 65 percent of the delegates to the General Convention are not mentioned in the constitution by the new or old working committee is not true. The Ministry has issued instructions to the association to make it mandatory for the general convention of the national committee to be held from July 1 to 31 and to send the details of the delegates to the secretariat by August 15.
The ministry has directed to hold new elections by questioning the legitimacy of the National Committees of the United States, UK, Portugal, France, Cyprus, Denmark, and Oman which do not convene on the scheduled date as per the constitution of the Union. The letter said that if the students have become members of any national committee of the association, it should be reviewed.
Dr. Sharma, General Secretary of the Association, said that the letter from the Foreign Ministry provided an opportunity to “clean up” the Association. The letter from the foreign ministry said that a decision would be taken at a meeting of the association after it became complicated to hold the general convention on the scheduled date.
