Ratnanagar, December 4

CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman and former prime minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal today said that there was no confusion regarding the formation of a majority government under the leadership of communists immediately after the polls.

Addressing an election rally in Ratnanagar of Chitwan today, Dahal said that no one could stop the communists from forming the government. He added that he had concluded that majority of votes had been cast for the left parties in the first phase of elections held on November 26.

Dahal, the candidate for Parliament from Chitwan-3, claimed that no force could defeat the communists for 50 years if the communist government was formed for five years and the government worked for development and prosperity of the people.

He added that Nepal would gain in terms of standard of living and other indicators and such historical opportunity should not be missed.

Also speaking at the programme, candidate of the left alliance in Chitwan-1 Surendra Pandey announced there would be changes in the development spheres of Chitwan. The former finance minister said that the first priority was investment in education, housing for the homeless, increment in elderly allowance and taking the country on the new track.
