Nepali Congress (NC) President and Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba have spoken of the need to take forward the party through internal unity.
At a programme organised by the NC, Pokhara Metropolitan City-17 Unit Committee in Kaski to honour freedom fighter Lilabhakta Acharya, PM Deuba argued that no one could beat the NC if the party stands unified.
Stating that NC was on the run-up to the national convention, Deuba viewed that new leadership should be elected unanimously forging unity in the party or be elected democratically in the party’s upcoming 14th national convention slated from November 25-29 in Kathmandu.
On a different note, the Prime Minister reminded freedom fighter Acharya’s longstanding contribution to the party and said that the party would always remember Acharya’s role.
Dubbing Pokhara City as the capital city of tourism in the country, Deuba expressed his concern over the adverse effects of COVID-19 on tourism in the country including the tourist hub- Pokhara.
As the cases of COVID-19 were dwindling in the country, he shared that the government of the UK was considering removing Nepal from the Red List.
Similarly, Chief Minister of Gandaki Province Krishna Chandra Nepali Pokharel asserted that the country was at a critical juncture of time and it needed the NC’s leadership. According to him, history had entrusted the NC with the responsibility to hold the reign of the country.
NC Kaski chapter President Krishna KC viewed that the NC should be more active in public affairs. Referring to nearing election, he said NC should take its responsibilities seriously.
On the occasion, NC President Deuba honoured freedom fighter Acharya with a letter of honour and shawl.
Freedom fighter Acharya donated Rs 50,000 to the NC’s Pokhara Metropolitan City-7 Unit Committee.
