Rajbiraj, December 14
Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal Chairperson Upendra Yadav today ruled out the possibility of party unification with Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal and dismissed talk about the two parties uniting as rumours.
While interacting with his voters during a felicitation programme in Boriya of Rajbiraj Municipality -16, today, Yadav said rumours about unification of the two forces
were surfacing, but party leaders had not discussed it yet. “Hence, the rumours are groundless,” said Yadav. He also said there was no possibility of his party’s merger with the CPN-UML.
Yadav said, “The incumbent government is a caretaker government. Hence, it doesn’t have the right to decide on any important matter. The to-be-formed government will appoint the province chiefs,” he said. Yadav, who won the parliamentary seat from Saptari-2, said the education system needed to be bolstered. “Vocational and employment-oriented education is the need of the hour. Only academic credentials are of no use in this challenging era,” he said. He stressed the new government had to create ample job opportunities to stop alarming brain-drain from the country.
