Resorting to agitation not character of good opposition: NC Spokesperson Sharma

NEPALGUNJ: Nepali Congress (NC) Spokesperson Bishwo Prakash Sharma said the NC does not have a widespread belief that opposition parties have to resort to agitation and strikes.

At a press meet held this morning by Nepal Press Union, Banke, Sharma said, "The opposition party must play creative and constructive roles that throwing stones and holding strikes are not the characters of a good opposition; Nepali Congress is a good opposition party."

Stating that NC would review the works after the incumbent government reaches its hundred days in office, Spokesperson Sharma said his party would raise alertness over weak and wrong steps and not stint in extending support on good works.

He argued that the unification between the two large communist forces would strengthen democracy, and that his party viewed the unification in the same light.

"It is wrong to think that NC has weakened in just one election, now Congress will commit itself to building its organisation after reviewing its defeat," he added.
