Sadbhavana party forwards 10-point demands to Govt.; Demands to declare poll date soon


KATHMANDU: After the alliance of 33 political parties it’s a turn of Sadbhavana Party to pressure the government for fulfilling their demands. The Interim Election Council has been facing pressure from different quarters for fulfilling their demands, so, the government is missing in the piles of demands rather than concentrating on the issue of holding the election of the constituent assembly.

Sadbhavana party submitted a 10-point charter of demands to Chairman of election government Khil Raj Regmi demanding immediate announcement of the Constituent Assembly elections.

The party announced its first phase of protest program from today. District chapters of the party have also submitted demands to the government through district administration offices today, said Chairman of the party Rajendra Mahato.

The party has called a general strike on May 12. Student unions of different political parties have also announced the general strike on the same day. It is organizing relay hunger strike in all the district headquarters from May 9 to 11.

The party, which is also a constituent of the four-party mechanism, resorted to protest to exert pressure tactics saying the government is dilly-dallying with regard to announcing the poll date.

The memorandum has asked the government to immediately form the electoral constituency delimitation commission and enable mothers who have acquired citizenship by birth to transmit citizenship to their children. The party also demanded that inclusion of Madhesis in all government bodies, including the judiciary be ensured. It has also sought increase in the Madhesis’ age of entry from 35 to 40 years of age as is the case with other categories. The party has asked the government to open exchange counters across Tarai districts to deal with the problem of acute shortage of Indian currency.

Addressing a press conference after submitting the memorandum, Mahato said the government was not providing security to cadres of armed groups of the Tarai who wanted to join mainstream politics. “If security is not provided to the cadres of armed groups, those who want to join peaceful politics may not be able to participate in the election,” Mahato added.
