National Convention of NRNA Qatar kicks off; Efforts for consensus leadership failed


DOHA: Nepali Ambassador to Qatar Dr. Maya Kumari Sharma inaugurated the 5th National Convention of Non Residential Nepali Association (NRNA) amidst a function in Doha.

Addressing the inaugural session Ambassador Sharma informed that the increasing influx of Nepali foreign job seekers to Qatar has added both opportunities and challenges. She also expressed concern over increasing number of Nepali people dying due to heart-attack and road accidents.

Vice-Chairperson of NRNA Rameshwor Shah informed that NRNs have been demanding dual citizenship since a long time and also underscored the need of institutionalizing the NRN movement as the movement has already crossed a decade.

General Secretary of NRNA Tenji Shrepa informed that he became sad to see the situation of Nepali Embassy in Qatar. He also informed that he is actively working to formally register the NRNA.

Secretary of NRNA TB Karki has also challenged not to neglect 2.3 million Nepalis currently working in Gulf countries, while registering the NRNA. He also informed that they will not accept the effort of removing the provision that one should stay at least 182 days for becoming the NRN. Similarly, chairperson of NRNA Qatar Amrit Gurung informed that he has been able to solve the problems being faced by Nepalis to some extent. He also informed that there will be eight percent contribution from Qatar in the NRN investment company, which is being established for having joint investment of Nepalis.

Vice-coordinator of the NRN Investment Fund Shesh Ghale, who was declared among richest persons of Australia, former vice-chairperson of NRNA Sagar Nepal among others addressed the inaugural session and stressed the need of formally registering the NRNA.

Finally election to decide leadership of NRNA

The effort of selecting leadership of NRNA Qatar Chapter through consensus failed. Mahasood Alam, Guru Narayan Ranabhat and Karim Box Miya filed candidacy for the top post of the organization. Similarly, Kumar Karki, Til Bikram Thebe have been competing for first Vice-Chairperson, while Binod Bhattarai, Tirtha Sangam Rai and Dhurbaraj Adhikari contesting for General Secretary of the NRNA. However Suk Bahadur Tamang has been elected for the post of second vice-chairperson unanimously. Similarly Keshar Kumar Sunuwar and Mahandra Bahadur Bhujel elected for members under Indigenous category, while Nabaraj BK elected under Youth category unopposed. Vice-chairperson of Nepal Loktantrik Manch (Nepal Democratic Front) Chanak Pokharel informed that the leadership was not selected today as they failed to elect the leadership unopposed as 69 persons have filed candidacy for 27 posts. The election for selecting executive committee will take place on August 30. The Nepal Loktantrik Manch and Nepali Janasamparka Samittee (Nepali People’s Contact Committee) have been working very hard to make candidates affiliated with their organizations as victorious.

Reflection of election of Central Leadership

Although the election is taking place for selecting the leadership for NRNA Qatar Chapter, it seems that the election fever is for the election of Central leadership. Rameshwor Shah, Tenji Sherpa and Shesh Ghale, who have announced candidacy for the post of central Chairperson of NRNA have been putting their efforts to convince voters to elect them during the NRNA Conference slated for later part of this year.
