Nepali Congress district presidents meet begins

A meeting of the district presidents of the Nepali Congress (NC), which is expected to advise the central leadership on key political issues, began at Lalitpur on Friday morning.

Lalitpur (Nepal), May 4 : A meeting of the district presidents of the Nepali Congress (NC), which is expected to advise the central leadership on key political issues, began at Lalitpur on Friday morning.

Most of the district presidents and some central leaders are participating in the two-day meeting being held at the NC central office in Sanepa. The meeting will be important in shaping the party's position on monarchy and the leftist demand for a republic, leaders said.

In his opening address to the meeting, party president and Prime Minister Girija Koirala said the eight-party unity should be sustained and directed party cadres to work towards bolstering this unity.

Koirala, however, took the CPN (UML) and the Maoists to task, accusing them of maintaining double standards. The behaviour of the UML and the Maoists in the government and outside has been different, he said.

He also said the Maoists had been constantly changing their demands regarding the upkeep of their People's Liberation Army.

Meanwhile, a Maoist minister has threatened to walk out of the government if the NC does not opt for a Republic of Nepal.

Speaking at a function organised by the Maoist affiliated journalists in Pokhara on the occasion of the World Press Freedom Day on Thursday, Local Development Minister Dev Gurung said his party would walk out of the government if the Congress did not become ready to declare Nepal a republic.

According to Gurung, the NC had agreed on the republic agenda while signing the 12-point understanding in New Delhi, the party has changed its position now and has become more inclined to support monarchy.

He also accused the NC for the deferral of the constituent assembly polls.

Maoist chairman Prachanda has stressed the need for Leftist unity to smoothen the way for establishment of republic at the earliest.

At a book-launching programme in the capital, Prachanda said unity has become crucial to resist the foreign interference in the country.

He said the constituent assembly polls could not be held in an easy environment until monarchy remained in the country. (ANI with inputs)
