KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala has expedited his consultations for the elections of the constituent assembly. In this process, Koirala held discussion with Chairperson of CPN-Maoist Mohan Baidya at the former’s residence at Maharajgunj, Kathmandu and urged Baidya to take part in the Constituent Assembly polls.
Responding to Koirala’s request, Baidya said his party is still against the November 19 polls and that he can ensure participation in the polls only when it is postponed and a new process begins. The four major parties have been saying that they would not compromise on the issue of postponing the elections of the constituent assembly, while Baidya and his alliance of 33 fringe parties have been reluctant to go for polls.
Meanwhile, Nepali Congress (NC) President Sushil Koirala has called on President Ram Baran Yadav at the latter’s residence in Sheetal Niwas on Saturday afternoon.
Emerging from the meeting with the President, Koirala said that he informed the Yadav about his impending India visit. Koirala is leaving for India visit starting tomorrow at the invitation of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
During the meeting, President Yadav urged Koirala on behalf of the High-Level Political Committee to take initiatives to bring the agitating parties on board the election process. In response, Koirala said that efforts for talks with the agitating parties are underway.
Meanwhile, Central Committee member of the party Gagan Thapa has urged the disgruntled parties not to boycott the Constituent Assembly (CA) elections.
Thapa said that everyone should be a part of the election as it is the only means to institutionalize democracy and republic in the nation. Thapa claimed that NC wants a qualitative election and not just a quantitative one. During the program, Thapa welcomed some 100 new party entrants and provided party’s general membership.
