By Purushottam Dhakal, LOS ANGELES:- Nepali American Sarahana Shrestha has announced her candidacy as State Delegates for District 103 in New York State. She is the first Nepali American to announce her candidacy in the New York State Delegates.

She has advocated out against climate change and economic and social justice and has announced her candidacy from the constituencies representing New York Ulster and Duchess County. As Shrestha is endorsed by the Hudson Valley Chapter of the Democratic Socialists, Kevin Cahill, a Democratic leader representing the region, will have to face Shrestha in the Democratic primary this time.

She has spoken out against climate change and economic and social justice and has announced her candidacy from the constituencies representing New York Ulster and Duchess County.

As Shrestha is endorsed by the Hudson Valley Chapter of the Democratic Socialists, Kevin Cahill, a Democratic leader representing the region, will have to face Shrestha in the Democratic primary this time.

Shrestha has already started her election campaign for the June 2022 primary. Shrestha has supported leftist agendas such as the New York Health Act, the Good Cause Eviction, and the Green New Deal. The Hudson Valley Chapter of the Democratic Socialists and a group called For the Meny issued a joint statement on Monday in support of Shrestha’s candidacy.

If she wins the next primary election in June, she will almost certainly win the last election in November. Shrestha is also a member of the Democratic Socialist Party in the United States and co-chair of the Ulster County for the Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter of the Democratic Socialist Party. She is also the leader of Coalition Public Power New York, which works to promote clean, renewable, affordable, and accessible electricity supplies.

In the lower house of New York State, each member of parliament represents approximately 130,000 residents. The term of an MP representing the lower house of the New York State Parliament is two years. The 2020 Democratic primary was canceled and Kevin Cahill won the election with 51,234 votes.

Kevin has been consistently winning elections from District 103 since 2012. Prior to that, he had won from District 101 from 1998 to 2010. He had previously won the lower house of the New York State Parliament from the same constituency in 1992. But this time, he will have to face the Democratic primary with Nepali-American candidate Sarahana Shrestha.

She came to New York in 2001 to study as an excellent graphic designer and also advocated for democracy in Nepal. Due to the political articles published in the online literature journal run by her, the then monarchy was even banned online in Nepal. Shrestha was granted US citizenship in 2019.

Lately, the participation of Nepali Americans in mainstream American politics has been increasing. Harry Bhandari, a Nepali-American Maryland State Delegate, has succeeded in reaching the highest position elected by the people.
