Parties to launch another round of poll campaign

Bhaktapur, March 28:

With only a few days left for poll day, political parties in Bhaktapur districts are all set to launch their second round of election campaigning. They have already completed door-to-door visits.

Lekhnath Neupane, a candidate from Nepali Congress from constituency no 2, said that his party has already completed door-to-door campaigning and will launch a second round of campaigning from tomorrow.

“We are expecting participation of over a thousand people in a mass meeting in Madhyapur Thimi where we will make good use of traditional musical instruments,” he said.

“Emergence of new parties in the poll fray is a sign of Loktantra, but the tactic of pressure they are implementing is not good,” he said indicating at the Maoists. “We have always gained the votes by winning peoples’ heart, but the new parties have tried to hold their position by threatening the public,” he said.

Narayan Man Bijuckhhe, president of Nepal Worker’s and Peasants Party (NWPP) and a candidate from NWPP from Constituency no 1 in Bhaktapur said: “The party is conducting second level election campaigning including meetings and interactions through out the district at the people’s call.”

“No party did anything significant for the public in Bhaktapur; so we are sure we will emerge victorious this time,” he said.

The CPN-Maoist has already completed its election campaigning in the district and is analysing

the party’s position by counting their potential votes.

Dipshikha, in-charge of the CPN-Maoist Election Mobilisation Committee for constituency no 2, said that the public are searching for an alternative political force that can ensure their rights.

He said: “Some of the leading political figures in the district have joined our party; so our victory is more likely this time in both constituencies.” Altogether, 43 candidates are contesting in the two constituencies.
