CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has accused the Nepali Congress of trying to forget its commitments to democracy.
In his address to an election assembly at Parbatipur of western Chitwan Monday, Dahal, who is contesting the House of Representatives election from the Chitwan constituency-3, urged the NC cadres to be aware of the decision of party leadership to ‘carry’ the pro-monarchist Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP).
His claim was that NC’s decision of forging the electoral alliance with the RPP in the upcoming elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies scheduled for November 26 and December 7 party was an insult to BP Koirala, Ganeshman Singh and Girija Prasad Koirala, the real heroes of Nepalese democratic movement.
He took the time to argue that he had no competitor from the Chitwan-3 as no Congress leader had filed the candidacy from here.
The former Prime Minister was of the view that there should be few parties for political stability and development in the country. He further added that the leftist alliance/unity was not intended to disadvantage any political party.
RPP-Prajatantrik vice chair and sitting Forest Minister Bikram Pandey is the candidate from the NC-led democratic alliance from the Chitwan- 3 for the federal election. Both alliances have intensified the election campaign.
