Chairperson of the CPN (Unified Socialist) and former prime minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has said his party would not unite with any political party before the election.

Chairperson Nepal said this during a gathering of active cadres organised by district committee of the party on today.

Although party unification is impossible, electoral alliance is expected, Nepal made it clear. He further said the current alliance could be extended even after election if the parties in the alliance were ensured participation in election in a respected manner.

Nepal urged arty cadres to start election preparations so that more number of seats could be ensured in the coming elections. "It is not time to depend solely on electoral alliance, activities should be forwarded in a way to achieve electoral target by winning people's confidence," he underscored.

Chairperson Nepal blamed the parties in the alliance for failing to show honesty in the local level elections. So, all of us need to be honest in the coming elections. He also asserted that his party was honest in the five-party alliance, so others too should follow suit.

On the occasion, party politburo member and former minister Prem Bahadur Ale vowed that he would not leave any stone unturned for the development of Sudurpaschim Province.

"When I was the minister, huge amount of budget was allocated for Sudurpaschim Province, including Doti district," he reminded.

He also viewed that his party was working for the rights of the poor and backward people.
