Irrigation Minister Gautam cautions intra-party feud could break off NC

GULARIYA, BARDIYA: Minister for Irrigation and Nepali Congress Bardiya President Sanjaya Kumar Gautam today warned that his party's future could end if it failed to shun 'internal conflict and ego'.

Minister Gautam, who reached Rajapur area for the first time after becoming the minister, addressed a felicitation programme organised by NC Constituency-4.

He cautioned that the intra-party feud could affect the party's buildup and impact its results in the upcoming third round of local level elections.

He also blamed the party's 'conflict and ego' as the reason for having to lose the posts of mayor and deputy mayor albeit winning majority of the wards in Rajapur.

Minister Gautam noted that there were indications that Bardiya will have two constituencies for the provincial and central elections, and expressed his belief that NC could win all the seats if conflicts could be resolved among the party cadres.
