“The country has had enough of political instability and chaos and can’t afford to face any more of it. As the people have entrusted the left alliance with a great responsibility, a mandate, we are in no position to squander this opportunity,” he said.

Further, expressing gratitude to all Nepali citizens for the support extended from home as well as abroad, he pledged to follow through on the election agenda. “We are obliged to the voters for showing their trust in us and will work with utmost sincerity towards making good on the promises made during elections,” he remarked.

Leftists’ victory both mandate, challenge: CPN-MC Chairman Dahal

CHITWAN: CPN Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the nationwide victory of the leftist alliance is both the people’s mandate and challenge.

Talking to journalists here in Chitwan this morning, Dahal said that the leftist alliance must ensure numerous accomplishments to address people’s mandate and the challenges. “The country has now made headway to prosperity. If the coming government works honestly for people, Nepal will have 50 years of leftist rule,” he argued, underscoring the need of development of infrastructures and improvement in people’s life.

According to him, the efforts to unify the CPN Maoist Centre and CPN-UML would be carried on. The party unity coordination committee would be held immediately after his return to the capital city, he shared. “Don’t doubt unity. Doubt turns to history,” he reiterated.

Moreover, the Chairman informed that the decision on who to lead the party, and who to become the prime minister would be taken after discussion.

Reasons behind loss of party’s heavyweights would be studied and they would be taken together.
