KATHMANDU, Feb 23: Major political parties held meetings and gatherings amidst the winter session of the Federal Parliament. These gatherings were primarily focused on framing strategies and exploring ways for garnering a majority in the next (2084 BS) parliamentary elections. Through such sittings, political parties endorsed resolutions for establishing political stability and bringing prosperity to the nation. 

The three major political parties: ruling Nepali Congress and the CPN (Maoist Center) and the main opposition CPN-UML introduced the respective political, organizational, policy-level and economic proposals and formulated 'ambitious' plans with an aim of securing a majority in the upcoming elections.   

Not only these  major political parties, but also the newly-emerged Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP) has come up with the Mission-2084 campaign, targeting the next parliamentary election going to be held in 2084 BS. The party has launched a pressure-exerting campaign, seeking the acceleration of delayed projects. 

In the Nepali Congress Mahasamiti meeting that concluded on Thursday, the party’s General Secretary Gagan Kumar Thapa expressed his hope that the party will emerge as the largest party through the upcoming election. The party said it is determined to reach provinces, districts, each electoral constituency, local levels, settlements, communities and the people's door steps with strategies, policies and programs that the mega gathering endorsed targeting the 2084 BS parliamentary elections. 

It is learnt that meetings and gatherings of major parties spend time discussing intra-party affairs, discipline, people's expectations and opinions about them and the future course of action. 

As the parties claimed, these events concluded with the commitments for contributing additionally to achieve political stability, enact laws and implement people's-centric programs.  

During the party's three-day Central Committee meeting that concluded on Thursday, CPN-UML leader Hemraij Rai said the party received submissions with potential ways for further strengthening the party by putting an end to organizational anarchy. As he said, an upcoming meeting of the party Secretariat will present a synthesized report regarding the submissions. 

He also took time to accuse the government of overlooking the people's problems. As he said, the incumbent government has failed to control price rise and the supply of goods in the black market. As he said, the government policies and decisions regarding nationality, development and economic aspects are weak.  

The central gathering of the party also agreed to implement the ideologies endorsed and directed by the 10th General Convention and to be strict against indiscipline and anarchy seen within the party.  The party has planned to effectively launch the 'mission grassroots' campaign, he said. 

"Political and ideological clarity and the common understanding of the goals are necessary to meet the objectives of Mission-84," he asserted.   

It may be noted that the party last December held the political campaign targeting the mid-hill highway zone and during the campaign, UML leaders interacted with the communities in 26 districts along the highway.

Meanwhile, the CPN (Maoist Center) launched a four-month 'Maoists with People's transformation campaign' beginning on September 2, 2023.  According to the party’s Chief Whip Hit Raj Pandey, the recent meeting reviewed the ripple of the transformation campaign deeply. 

The CPN (Maoist Center)'s Statute Convention and the Central Committee meeting were concluded a few days back and presently the Standing Committee meeting is underway.  According to Pandey, those two meetings held a critical review of multiple-dimensions within the party.  

The CPN (Maoist Center) is going to organize the Tarai-Madhesh Awareness campaign on March 14-28 this year considering the fact that the party has tremendous potential and scope in the Terai-Madhesh belt. 

The campaign will see the participation of party chairperson as well as office-bearers and will begin from Jhapa district and run through Kanchanpur district, said Chief Whip Pandey.

Similarly, the party is launching the Himal-Pahad-Tarai Madhesh National Unity Campaign. Emphasis will be laid on making party cadres and leaders more responsible and ensure the party's outreach among the people. Chief Whip Pandey opined that people were concerned whether their priorities and expectations would be addressed in the budget.
