Nepali Congress has begun its district-level convention today in 65 districts and the conventions in remaining districts will be held in a few days, according to the party.

Some districts have postponed the conventions due to internal dispute and obstruction by party workers.

A few districts elected the party leadership today at the district level while others have just initiated the process, said the party’s Election Committee member Gopal Krishna Ghimire. Overall result of most districts will come by tomorrow evening, according to him.

Some districts including Dolakha, Solukhumbu, Bara, Parsa, Dhanusha and Saptari are not in the condition to hold conventions tomorrow itself due to internal reasons and it will take a few days to complete conventions in those districts, according to Ghimire.

Meanwhile, inaugurating the NC’s Kathmandu convention, leaders underlined the need to revamp the party organisations by correcting its weaknesses.

Senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba said the NC became weak due to the party’s inability to reach proper and timely decisions. Stating that the party organisation did not function well in the past, he underscored the need to revamp the party.

He blamed the government of moving ahead the National Authority of Reconstruction unilaterally as it was guided by partisan interest.

NC General Secretary Prakash Man Singh said that the party leadership should come from the capital city Kathmandu.

Central Working Committee member Narahari Acharya said the party successfully led the constitution making process despite various difficulties and it should now work for successful implementation of the new statute.

CWC member Nabindra Raj Joshi expressed discontent over the high-handedness of the crowds of unable persons in the party impeding the party’s internal democracy.

He urged the leaders to come up with concrete agenda in the 13th National General Convention to be held from March 3 to 6 in Kathmandu. He suggested that leaders bring the party’s policy for fighting against corruption, black-marketing and solving people’s problems through the NGC.

Youth leader Gagan Thapa said that the NC should now lead the implementation of the new constitution and encompass the agendas of all sections of people as far as possible.

President of the party’s Kathmandu chapter Bhimsen Das Pradhan said the tendency to bear the party’s position even until last breath of life should now end.

Pradhan, Sabuj Baniya, Raju Raj Joshi and Narottam Baidhya are preparing to contest the post of party president of Kathmandu district in the election to be held tomorrow.
