Mahato not to assume ministerial post; Mahato and Oli call for timely polls


KATHMANDU: With the date for the elections of the constituent assembly nearing leaders of various political parties have started expressing their views in favor or against the proposed election. In similar attempt, chairperson of Nepal Sadbhavana Party Rajendra Mahato vowed not to assume any ministerial portfolio in the upcoming government and said that he would sacrifice ministerial positions for other deserving candidates.

Speaking at a press conference in the Capital on Saturday, the former Minister said, “After assuming ministerial posts for five times under different governments, I do not have any greed for post.”

He also claimed that he would devote his future life for Madhes and its populace. Stating that it is important to conduct the Constitution Assembly polls on the stipulated date in order to ensure the rights of the Dalits, Madhesis and other backward communities, Mahato said failing to do so would prevent the Madhesis and marginalized communities from a constitution that could only ensure their rights.

He however ruled out the possibility of polls until constituencies are delimited fairly on the basis of population, voting rights are granted to those without citizenships and security is ensured for those underground outfits who have come to hold talks. He also added that the party will organize a rally in Kathmandu to protest the Supreme Court’s recent ruling against the Election Commission. The SC ruling bars the EC from registering those voters whose names had figured in the 2008 voters’ list but lack citizenship.

Meanwhile, Speaking at a program in Capital CPN-UML Standing Committee Member KP Sharma Oli has urged all stakeholders to concentrate on making the upcoming Constituent Assembly elections successful.

Leader Oli urged all not to obstruct the election process.”The vote is linked to development. It is a must for drafting a new constitution. Therefore, people from all sectors need to focus on holding CA polls,” he added.
