Deputy Prime Minister Pokharel instructs to gear up for mid-term poll

“The electoral symbol Sun will be there wherever Prime Minister Oli is.”

CHITWAN: Deputy Prime Minister Ishwor Pokharel has directed the cadres of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) in the district to start preparations for the by-election scheduled on April 30 and May 10 this year.
At a programme organized by the NCP District Convention Organizing Committee here today, DPM Pokharel claimed that the by-election would be held on the stipulated time and instructed the cadres for preparations for the same by leaving behind the internal division. Stating that the Election Commission of Nepal was also preparing for the by-election, the DPM explained, “The government was going for a fresh mandate since the party people did not allow the PM to work.” Urging the cadres not to worry about the authority of the NCP, he asserted, “The electoral symbol Sun will be there wherever Prime Minister Oli is.” He hit out at some political leaders for their unwillingness to disown the electoral symbol sun earlier and their claim over the symbol lately and termed the tendency to be a ‘farce’. Arguing that the country had plunged into current crisis due to the internal conflict, he also blamed the charges filed against PM Oli had led to the current situation.
Furthermore, he reminded that the merger between the two communist parties had taken place in 2018 to ensure political stability, national sovereignty and to end the anarchy. “It’s high time that the cadres of the party become more responsible as the NCP was not active for three years into the merger,” the DPM said. On the occasion, a committee comprising 599 members was declared and an oath administration ceremony was also held.
