PATAN – General Secretary of Nepali Congress Gagan Kumar Thapa has said the notion that ‘federalism is foisted’ is wrong. NC should be clear on it.
“It is true that federalism is not functioning well; we need correction on it. But, it is wrong to say that federalism is foisted,” Thapa argued while putting forth his views in the going central committee meeting of the party on Monday.
Among the mainstream political parties, NC was the first to hold its convention and endorse the adoption of federal democratic system by ending the unitary system, he reminded, expressing concern why the parliament failed to make 40 laws to enforce the system that we established via struggle and movement.
“Whom are we blaming while derailing the system achieved with hard struggle?” He wondered in the meeting. Rather than worrying about 2084BS election, social harmony should be fostered in the country run by the present constitution, Thapa suggested.
The General Secretary further asserted that only NC was capable to maintain social harmony in the country as per this constitution. “Our discussions won’t function by shirking off responsibilities,” he underscored.
According to him, a central committee meeting could be organized to hold frank discussions on performance of ministers from the party and furnish suggestions for better performance in the party.
