Kawasoti, December 31
Nepali Congress General Secretary Shashank Koirala today made it clear that his party’s recently-held Maha Samiti meeting had resolved the intra-party rift
Addressing a programme organised by Nepali Congress Nawalparasi Bardaghat Susta East in Kawasoti on the occasion of the 43rd National Reconciliation Day, Koirala held that his party had suffered debacle in the last polls due to intra-party rift. He said that he was working wholeheartedly to make the Nepali Congress the single largest party in the next general elections.
Koirala argued that the Maha Samiti meeting held in Kathmandu had unified the party by ending intra-party dispute. “The need of the hour is a united and potent Nepali Congress, not a party marred by factions and sub-factions,” Koirala added. He informed that he was working to give a new lease of life to the NC. “I have taken the initiative to unify the NC with BP’s ideology and it has sent a strong message of revival of the party’s lost glory,” he stated.
Koirala stressed the need to expand the party organisation at the grassroots level. “Those who work will be evaluated in the party,” Koirala stated. He said his party would protect the language, and culture of various communities and ethnic groups, and keep social goodwill intact. “NC is committed to protecting the languages and cultures of various groups and communities to strengthen national unity,” he added.
