Dahal expresses confidence of holding polls on November 19; NC expresses concern over vandalism at NLDA


KATHMANDU: One day after the government expedited the electoral process as per the suggestion of High Level Political Committee following failure of their talks with the poll opposing 33-party alliance, Chairperson of UCPN-Maoist Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ claimed that the scheduled November 19 Constituent Assembly (CA) poll has gained certainty from now on.

Talking to journalists in Sindhuli on Wednesday, Dahal said, “The scheduled election date would not be differed at any cost despite boycott threats issued by CPN-Maoist camp.” He further said that parties have tried enough to bring the CPN-Maoist onboard the election process but it could not be succeeded.

“Anyway, the second CA election has been guaranteed and the election date would not be changed”, he said. “We are a bit hopeful that Baidhyajee will finally agree to join the election,” he said and urged the people to give votes to the parties realizing their roles and contributions in the first CA.

Dahal further said that they had even requested Election Commission to extend the date of filing for candidate nominations by seven more days for the sake of CPN-Maoist’s participation in the election but went in vein.

On a query of about the unity between tow Maoist factions, Dahal ruled out any possibility at least prior to the upcoming elections. The talks between both the sides failed after the dissenting parties did not agree to take part in the election demanding resignation of chairperson of the Interim Election Government Khil Raj Regmi from the post of Chief Justice.

Meanwhile, Nepali Congress (NC) has expressed concern over the premeditated vandalism and theft at the Anamnagar-based Nepal Democratic Lawyer’s Association (NDLA) office on Monday night.

The recent mysterious theft and vandalism at the central office of the NDLA which has been actively working in protection and promotion of fundamental values of democracy from its establishment has challenged the security management of the country, stated a statement issued by the NC’s Central Office Chief Secretary Chin Kaji Shrestha on Wednesday.

Unidentified thieves had stolen valuable documents and computers from the office. It seems the incident took place to make the free judiciary, and human rights fragile, the statement read. NC urged all legal eagles affiliated with the NDLA to work actively to achieve their goals and not to be saddened.
