By-poll hype fizzles out as CPN deems Rambir’s resignation unnecessary


Kathmandu, Oct. 22: The by-poll hype has finally ended after the CPN secretariat meeting deemed unnecessary the resignation of the Member of Parliament Ram Bir Manandhar.
Elected from constituency no 7 of Kathmandu, Manandhar had earlier announced resignation from the MP post in a bid to elect leader Bamdev Gautam as the member of the House of Representative. He had also submitted a letter to the party leadership seeking permission for it.
The meeting however decided against his decision, which aborted the efforts made for Gautam’s entry to the HoR.
The party secretariat meeting decided that no decision was required on Manandhar’s request, according to Spokesperson of the party, Narayan Kaji Shrestha.
The leaders in the middle rung took initiative to end the recent discussion of by-poll after the Manandhar’s sudden resignation created suspicion among the top leaders.
The risk of losing election by Gautam was also vibrantly pointed out in and outside the party.
Meanwhile, upcoming meeting of the standing committee of the party would dwell on the dissatisfaction shown by senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal on party’s decision on the nomination of province in-charge, co-in-charge, chairperson and secretary.
Spokesperson Shrestha further said the meeting also reiterated its commitment that the unification of the lower rungs of the party would be carried out successfully at any cost. RSS
