KATHMANDU: Rather than concentrating on holding serious talks with the dissenting groups for convincing them to take part in the elections of the constituent assembly, leaders of major political parties just making their rhetoric that the elections should take place on November 19.
Speaking at a program in the Capital on Thursday, Nepali Congress Vice-President Ram Chandra Poudel said it is possible for holding talks on demands raised by Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist if the Maoist party agrees not to postpone the Constituent Assembly elections slated for November 19.
Poudel further said that there is no alternative to holding CA elections. “There have been several attempts to derail democracy by so-called revolutionary forces and CPN-Moist and UCPN-Maoist are trying to betray the people by creating illusion,” he added. Earlier, Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala has said that announcement of CPN-Maoist to boycott the poll is a conspiracy hatched by both the Maoist parties.
Similarly, speaking at a press conference organized by Nepal Press Union in Mahendranagar on Thursday, Nepali Congress Spokesperson Dilendra Prasad Badu has said that elections were essential to save democracy.
Stating that all parties are ready for elections, the NC leader expressed his confidence that the dissenting parties would also ultimately join the electoral process.
On a different note, NC spokesperson Badu claimed that the floods in Darchula were a result of neighboring India releasing water from the Dhauliganga dam.
A joint technical team of the two countries should carry out a geological study of the affected site to ensure that such mishap is not repeated in the future. The technical committee could also bring out the exact detail of the damage in Darchula, he added.
