State and Federation election date to be announced soon: PM Deuba

07/21/2017

Kathmandu, July 21: Prime Minister and Nepali Congress president Sher Bahadur Deuba has said all the three levels of election were imperative for the implementation of the constitution and that the date for the election of the state and federation would be announced soon.
Addressing a programme organized by the Society for Democratic Thinking today to commemorate the 35th memorial day of the popular leader the late BP Koirala, PM Deuba underlined the need of conducting all the three levels of elections within the time frame stipulated by the constitution.
"The election constituency delimitation commission has been constituted on Thursday only in preparation for the state and federation elections," he said, adding that two rounds of the local-level elections have already been held while the third phase local election for Province 2 is due on September 18.
He was of the view that the federal democratic republic would be stabilized only after the conduction of the three-tier elections in the stipulated timeframe.
The Prime Minister, who is also the Nepali Congress president, stated that as the largest and the oldest democratic party in the country it was incumbent upon the Nepali Congress to transform the parties yet to change themselves in democratic parties to do so.
Nepali Congress leader Arjun Narsingh KC expressed concern over the growing culture of power-sharing among the political parties rather than respecting the knowledge and skills of an individual while making appointments to different high posts in the state bodies. He called on the intellectual community to give realistic suggestions based on critical truth to the rulers.
Party leader Sujata Koirala said the people have trusted the Nepali Congress throughout as it has always played a leading role for resolving each and every crisis facing the country, and drew the attention of the party leadership over the waning in people's trust towards the party in the latest elections.
Another party leader Laxman Ghimire expressed worry over the tenets of nationality, democracy and socialism propounded by the late BP Koirala getting shadowed, saying the public trust towards politics and the political leaders was on the wane due to the high-handed activities of the present political leadership.
Society president Dr Kedar Narsingh KC, senior vice-president and RSS chairman Kul Chandra Wagle, former president Homnath Dahal, Nepal Bar Association president Sher Bahadur KC, secretary Dr Basudev Bhandari, among the speakers, talked about the works carried out by the Society and its relevance.
On the occasion, Prime Minister Deuba honoured party leader Chakra Prasad Bastola with the 'Loktantrik Yodhdha (Democratic Fighter)' title and a cash prize of Rs 25 thousand. Bastola has been hospitalized for long and is in a semi-conscious state.
Bastola's spouse, Kusum Bastola received the award on behalf of her bed-ridden husband.
A special publication entitled 'Chintan' dedicated to former Prime Minister and party president the late Girija Prasad Koirala, was also released on the occasion. RSSĀ
