Pokhara, November 15

Nepali Congress central member Minendra Rijal said today that the party could not afford to lose the upcoming by-poll in Kaski’s Constituency No 2.

Speaking at a meeting with party leaders and cadres following the completion of the first phase of door-to-door election campaign today, the NC leader, who has been mobilised in Kaski for the past one week for the campaign, said securing victory in the constituency was important to save reputation of the party and the country.

“Winning the election is not enough to push our party to the government, nor can it make any change in the government. Yet, it is important to win the election here at least to show that people still trust our party, and to stop the government from its undemocratic activities,” Rijal said.

“As the election is important, I hereby urge all party leaders and cadres to reach out to the voters, talk to them and win them over,” he told NC cadres and leaders.

Rijal also met all the leaders and cadres of NC-aligned sister wings, including Nepal Women Association, Nepal Tarun Dal, Nepal Student Union and learnt about their strategies to win the polls here.

NC in Kaski has intensified its door-to-door election campaign. According to NC district President Krishna KC, his party cadres and leaders have been reaching out to every ward and village.
