Work to win people’s hearts, says NC President Deuba

Kathmandu, October 18

Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba today said NC should work responsibly to win hearts of people so that the party could win elections in the future.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of a training programme organised by NC Central Policy, Research and Training Academy for elected party members in local governments today, Deuba said the citizens were the ultimate masters.

“We need to win the hearts of the people with our good work. If we fail to win their hearts now, it will be difficult for us to win future elections. We need to show that we are exemplary. This is why the elected representatives at local levels should work better,” he said.

“Citizens are frustrated with the incumbent government as it has become more autocratic and has been trying to control bureaucracy and judiciary. We, therefore, need to act. If necessary we will come up with a protest,” he added.

NC leaders, addressing the event, expressed that there should be proper co-ordination, transparency and accountability among party cadres and elected representatives to win big in the elections of the future.

“We need to show to the public that if the NC wins it will do better. This is why the elected representatives should work responsibly,” said senior NC leader Ramchandra Paudel.

There should be proper co-ordination among party members, the co-ordination committees and elected representatives, said another leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula.

The Nepali Congress has organised a two-day training programme for its elected members to hold discussions, hear about the challenges the elected members have been facing and to come up with strategic plans to win the future elections.

“We want to act as a good opposition party. We need to give importance to agriculture and help youths in the country,” said NC General Secretary Shashanka Koirala.

“As the country has embarked on a three-tier government system, local levels are very important. If we can do good this time then it will help us achieve success in the coming days. It is time to review the mistakes made in the past and prepare for elections in the future,” added Sitaula.
