Paudel says he will contest for NC presidency

Damauli, January 27

Nepali Congress Vice President Ram Chandra Paudel today said no one would obstruct him from vying for the post of party president in the upcoming national general convention.

Speaking at a function organised by Reporters’ Club, Tanahun, in Damauli today, Paudel said he would file his candidacy for top post of the party at any cost. “No force can stop me from contesting for the post. Party cadres from across the country have advised me to file my

candidacy for the post,” he argued.

Stating that there was no other leader as committed as him in the party, he said, “There is no alternative to my leadership if leaders want to end factionalism in the party,” he claimed.

On a different context, leader Paudel said his party-led government had promulgated the new constitution and therefore the onus was on the party to take initiatives for the effective implementation of the plomulgated constitution.
