Now I understand why partnering with communists is a bad idea, says Deuba

Nepali Congress President and former prime minister Sher Bahadur Deuba says he has now understood why his party’s founder late BP Koirala said the Congress party should not partner with communists.

Speaking at a function organised in Kathmandu on the occasion of BP Memorial Day, the leader said, “BP knew about the communists then. But, we knew them just now: they can never be for people.”

Deuba reiterated that the current communist government deprived people of their rights as it has declared many public places of Kathmandu Valley no-protest zone.

“This is undemocratic and it proves they cannot work for people. They have tried to establish a single-party, authoritarian, totalitarian form of governance.”

He adds, “They do not let you speak, write and express your voices.”

In another context, he said demands raised by medical education reform activist Dr Govinda KC were right, adding his party would be unified to save his life.

Eight Nepali Congress leaders demand immediate local, provincial conventions 2 SHARES FacebookTwitterEmail Onlinekhabar Clockwise, from top left: Gagan Thapa, Chandra Bhandari, Dhana Raj Gurung, Guru Raj Ghimire, Ram Krishna Yadav, Kiran Yadav, Jeevan Pariyar and Pradeep Paudel Kathmandu, June 20 Whereas factional politics is at its peak in Nepali Congress, eight youth leaders of the party have demanded that the main opposition begin the process of electing new leadership immediately, claiming the current leadership is incapable of taking the party ahead effectively. As the party’s district presidents have gathered in Hetaunda of Makawanpur for a three-day meeting, the youth leaders–namely: Chandra Bhandari, Dhana Raj Gurung, Gagan Thapa, Jeevan Pariyar, Guru Raj Ghimire, Pradeep Paudel, Ram Krishna Yadav, and Kiran Yadav–have called them to press the party leadership for holding conventions of local and provincial level committees by the end of current Nepali year (mid-April 2019). They have argued that the 14th national general convention of the party must be organised in February-March 2020; therefore concluding conventions of lower committees should be an immediate priority as it also takes time. Otherwise, the party will lose next provincial and parliamentary elections, to be held in 2022, they have warned. The leaders have distributed a three-page letter to all participants of the meeting. “Do you think a strong opposition role is possible with current style, leadership and ideological confusion? No!” the letter reads, “Now, it is essential to finalise a new mission of the Congress so that its organisation can carry a new agenda for the new era. We also need to elect a new leadership capable for that.” If that happens, the party will prepare itself for upcoming local, provincial and federal parliamentary elections, according to them.
