NEPALGUNJ: Standing Committee member of UCPN-Maoist Krishna Bahadur Mahara has remarked that former King Gyanendra Shah could be given the party ticket to contest the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) election if the latter transformed himself.
Speaking at a program in Nepalgunj on Tuesday, leader Mahara said that his party does not harbour grudges against anybody. The former Minister went on to say that his party was ready to give former King Shah the party candidacy if he was willing to change himself.
“Door for possibilities is always open in politics and why should we be bias if someone wants to come with correction”, he added. “As he has shown willingness to live as a common citizen, not only our party but every other party will field him as a candidate in the election.”
He was, however, quick to dismiss the chances of the former King making comeback in the domestic politics.
He expressed his hope that government would announce the election date once homework to this effect was completed. He expressed the hope that the alliance of 33-political parties opposing the poll would take part in the elections.
Meanwhile addressing a press meet in Kathmandu, former minister and coordinator of the Terai Madhesh National Campaign (TMNC), Jay Prakash Gupta, has said that he will not register his party in the Election Commission and partake in the Constituent Assembly elections until the government’s positive response to his demands.
He also expressed reservations over issues related to delineation of constituencies, size of the CA, threshold, voter’s list collection, party registration provision and inclusive ordinance.
Gupta further said that they will register their party only after the government’s response to these demands and added that he is mulling over the next Madhes revolution.
