election as per schedule-senior leader Deuba

Kathmandu, July 2: Senior leader of Nepali Congress Sher Bahadur Deuba has urged the NC cadres not to go after 'tea shop' rumours that the atmosphere is not conducive to elections.

He said, "the present government was formed just for holding elections while the government and the election commission are preparing for the election. So, the political parties should set everything aside and join the electoral process. "

Speaking at a programme organized to mark the 90th birth anniversary of former NC President and former Prime Minister late Girija Prasad Koirala here today, he said the statement by some parties to go for elections only after the present government is dissolved is just an excuse to stop the elections from being held.
It will take another year if we start a new game all over again to elect a new prime minister, he added.

Stating that elections have a very important role in a democracy, leader Deuba said no side should indulge in any act that could foil the elections.

On the occasion, leader Deuba also described the late Koirala as a national leader who was able to take decisions quickly and lauded his role in bringing the then rebels, the CPN-Maoist to the peace process.

Nepali Congress General Secretary Krishna Prasad Sitoula said that the elections scheduled for November 19 cannot be postponed at any cost.

Discussion with the CPN-Maoist and other dissenting parties are heading towards a positive direction, he said and added, "their just demands would be met, but even after that they do not join the elections then they will remain behind".

NC central members Narahari Acharya and Ambika Basnet emphasized on the need for unity within the party for taking part in the upcoming CA elections.

Speaking at the programme, Kedarnath Timilasen, an injured of the Janandolan, said NC cadres were very disappointed at the moment and so the party should come up with new programmer to encourage and reenergize them. RSS
