KATHMANDU – CPN (Maoist Center) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has dubbed the upcoming local level elections slated for May 13 a struggle between progressive and regressive forces.
In a message today, he urged people not to take the May 13 elections just as a general event and called for a massive public support for making the party and electoral alliance candidates victorious in the election.
“May the upcoming elections be a milestone for decentralization of governance and for building a prosperous Nepal along with the guarantee of social justice,” the leader of one of the government coalition parties said.
The leader claimed that forces who are against federalism, inclusive proportional representation and the rights of suppressed and neglected community were conspiring against the constitution and the historic achievements.
“People are yet to feel the presence of federalism, inclusion, proportional representatives and social justice as wished by them and there is a challenge for us to achieve social justice through the achievement of development, health, education and employment opportunities based on local needs by empowering local levels,” he said.
According to him, people could not feel the presence of democracy in real sense until subsidy-based agricultural production, pension for farmers, jobs from industrialization and rural sufficiency economy, elimination of all sorts of discrimination and exploitation and discouragement of remittance-based economy are ensured.
