NC leaders call for timely poll; hope to bring dissatisfied group on board


KATHMANDU: Senior leader of Nepali Congress Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that the Constituent Assembly elections will take place on November 19 at any cost.

Addressing he program in the Capital on Wednesday, leader Deuba stated that the polls are certain as the Election Commission and the security agencies are fully prepared to carry out their tasks. He also expressed optimism that the agitating parties will also take part in the elections.

At a time former Prime Ministers have been facing criticism for meeting Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid against the protocol, the Congress leader said that the issue of protocol in the meetings of the top leaders of parties with visiting Indian Minister should not be blown out of proportion. “The meeting was focused on the interests of Nepal and Nepalis. It [protocol] should be taken negatively,” he added.

Former Prime Ministers and Deputy Prime Ministers including Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Deuba, Baburam Bhattarai and Jhala Nath Khanal had gone to Hotel Dwarika’s to meet Khurshid when he was in Kathmandu for a day-long visit on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Nepali Congress (NC) leader Sujata Koirala stressed on the need of creating conducive environment for all the political parties to take part in the elections. She also said that a free, fair and impartial election is essential to end the existing political crisis.

Saying that CA election featuring only four major parties would be meaningless, Koirala stressed on the broader participation of the political parties on the proposed CA election

“We need cooperation and participation from all the political parties. Election conducted by just the four major parties will have no meaning,” said the former Foreign Minister.

The alliance of 33-political parties has been opposing the election demanding fulfillment of their demands, which include ouster of the Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi led government.
