RJP presidium coordinator puts conditions to take part in local poll

07/15/2017

Parsa, July 15: Rastriya Janata Party (RJP) Nepal presidium coordinator Mahantha Thakur has said the party is ready to take part in the third-phase of local-level elections provided that the government implemented the three-point agreement that it signed with the Madhes-centric parties.
He expressed his hope that an atmosphere of election would be built if the government became serious towards the enforcement of past agreements.
Addressing a programme organised to welcome new-comers to the party at Bishrampur of Bahudarmai Rural Municipality Saturday, leader Thakur sought the delineation of electoral constituencies on the basis of population, status of martyrs to those Madhesi killed during the Madhes agitation, treatment expense to the injured and the withdrawal of agitation-related cases, which according to him, would build an atmosphere for the party to participate in the election.
The RJP would join the election if the government could ensure that it decision would vital in the condition of lack of two-third majority for the amendment of the constitution, he added.
On the occasion, he took the opportunity to blame the government for pushing the Madhes back by investing less in the health and education sectors there.
Party spokesperson Bimal Shreewastav, leaders Neja Mudin Samani and Sashi Shanker Miya said that the party would not be taking part in the election in the existing situation.
Leader Thakur welcomed new comers who decided to join the party by quitting their associations to different political parties by offering them garland and vermilion powder. (RSS)
