KATHMANDU: At a time when the agitating parties are adamant to their stance of boycotting the elections of the constituent assembly, leaders if major political parties have said that there is no alternative to the elections of the constituent assembly slated for November 19.
Leaders of key political parties gathered at the 90th birth anniversary of late Girija Prasad Koirala emphasized that the polls must be held on the stipulated date.
Nepali Congress vice president Ram Chandra Poudel said election is the most effective solution to most of the problems which have been witnessed by everybody now. Hinting at the CPN-Maoist, which has been opposing the elections, Poudel said that nationalism cannot be protected merely by one single party.
Addressing the same program General Secretary of UCPN-Maoist, Posta Bahadur Bogati, said the country and all people want consensus and that’s why, elections are proposed to head towards a consensus. “It is the need of the hour that we focus on elections now,” Bogati said.
However Secretary of CPN-Maoist Dev Gurung said that his party would participate in election only when their demands are fulfilled. “Our demands include distribution of citizenship and the formation of a political government,” Gurung added.
Meanwhile addressing a program in Dang on Friday CPN-UML vice Chairman Bamdev Gautam said that election would be held on the stipulated date even if some of the political parties would boycott it.
Gautam also accused the CPN-Maoist of planning to seize state power with the help of weapons. They, however, would not be successful in their plan, he said. The party would ruin itself if it continues to terrorize the people, he argued.
People would punish those people instigating anarchist thoughts, Gautam said, urging the CPN-Maoist not to do such activities that would negatively affect the people.
