DHARAN, Nov 12: CPN UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli has said people would not vote for the rebel candidates, but for the candidates of the alliance of UML and its ally.
Addressing a joint election assembly of the UML-JSP in Dharan on Friday, Chairman Oli reiterated that people would not favor the candidates who flouted the party rule and fielded rebellion candidacy. He alleged that the rebel candidates had grossly ignored works of people but yearned for post and power.
According to him, the campaign of independent candidacy was launched as a conspiracy against the party system and democracy in the country. "People don't need to be swayed by the independent candidate. UML is a disciplined political party," he asserted.
He directed the party cadres to provide security to the ballot boxes and impart voter education to people.
Chairman Oli argued that Ashok Rai, once elected, would ensure development of Dharan. Oli also hinted that Ashok Rai would be minister in the government to be made after the November 20 election to the House of Representatives and Provincial Assemblies.
"National budget is required for solving drinking water problems and intensifying development activities in Dharan. It needs a UML government," Chairman Oli argued.
On the occasion, Rai, who is the candidate for HoR member from constituency-1 of Sunsari, argued that votes for him would not be a waste but an investment.
