YCL to mobilise cadres in booths for CA polls

Kathmandu, January 26:

The Young Communist League (YCL) said today it will mobilise at least 200 cadres in each of

the polling stations in the upcoming April 10 Constituent Assembly election, claiming that it has a total of 400,000 cadres across the country.

A 49-member central volunteer mobilisation committee has been formed under the leadership of party central committee member Sonam to mobilise YCL cadres during the CA election, according to a press statement issued today by the YCL.

Other volunteer mobilisation committees would also be formed at local, district and regional levels.

“We have adequate number of youth volunteers who will be stationed in all the polling booths,” said YCL president Ganeshman Pun. Comrade Sonam, who supervises the YCL, said they had almost 1.4 million youth cadres from

all the sister organisations, student wings and 11 state councils who will be mobilised

during the CA election in a coordinated manner.

Sonam said a lesser number of cadres would be deployed in the Maoist’s strongholds, while a large number of volunteers would be pressed into service in the areas where the party has lost popularity. He said they would also reach an understanding with youth wings of other political parties to conduct the CA polls in a free and fair manner. Pun said they

would launch publicity campaigns for the CA polls across the country beginning from January, adding the public would be urged to elect party chairman Prachanda as the first president of the country.

The YCL’s recently held meeting also decided to hold various programmes regarding the alleged encroachment of Nepali territories by India. The statement said the YCL would hold interactions among the people living in Nepal-India border, form “border civic security committee” and hand over memoranda to the government and Indian Embassy about the alleged encroachment issue.
