RUPANDEHI, Nov 28: Federal Council Chair of the Janata Samajwadi Party (JSP) Nepal, Dr Baburam Bhattarai has stressed the need for steering the country toward lasting peace and transformation by maintaining national unity.
Speaking at a press meet organized by the JSP Rupandehi in Butwal on Sunday, Bhattarai said that creating an alternative force is the need of the hour for the country's prosperity and change in the living standard of the people.
The former Prime Minister asserted that the country would get an outlet only with the formation of a central socialist force.
Stating that people are despondent and confusion has arisen in the lack of an economic, social, and cultural change in the country, Bhattarai suggested moving ahead by forging unity among the political forces in a new way.
He also expressed concern over the erosion of democratic norms and values in the country and the power-centric politics of the parties. Bhattarai said that the crisis in the Supreme Court was an example of this trend. He also accused the 'old political parties' of taking the people for a ride spreading lies.
Bhattarai advocated a new socialist model for safeguarding national unity and sovereignty, stressing the need for forming a forward-looking political force for the same.
The party's senior leader Ashok Rai said the party has initiated a four-month organization strengthening campaign for changing the living standard of the people.
Rai said the party will take its thoughts and strategies to the people and also listen to their views during the campaign.
