KATHMANDU, Feb 28: Famous radio journalist Rabindra Mishra has left Nepali radio service of BBC to enter into politics with a new party.
Issuing a press release, Mishra said that he has decided to form a new political party with a hope that Nepalis frustrated by the decades of selfish, extractive, pretentious and non-transparent politics would help him.
"Our goal is to create a common platform to bring together honest and capable Nepalis from all walks of life for the sake of clean politics to transform Nepal," said Mishra.
"By bringing a massive number of like-minded Nepalis together, we believe that we will not merely be creating just another political party that will come into existence but can never lead the country towards prosperity. Instead, it will be the rise of a leadership that takes the country firmly towards the path of total transformation" he added.
Mishra informed that a group of committed people had for long been involved in ideological and strategic deliberations in this regard and claimed that this group has now gained the confidence to translate their work into action.
