RATNANAGAR, June 3: Nepali Congress Spokesperson Dr Prakash Sharan Mahat has said that the current five-party ruling alliance will continue until the upcoming federal elections.
The alliance forged at the local level will last till the upcoming election, Dr Mahat said while speaking at a news conference organized by Nepal Press Union (NPU), Chitwan, here today.
Noting that a positive result has come out in the local level election, he urged the party leaders and cadres to go by the decision made in the meeting of the ruling coalition. He further stated that the Nepali Congress has never harbored egoism and what the coalition parties' leaders have said in the course of training to their party cadres did not have any significance.
"The Nepali Congress is not on the path of egoism. Pushpa Kamal Dahal might have said it in the course of training his party cadres. I don't think this has to be given much importance," the NC spokesperson said responding to a journalist's question regarding what the CPN (Maoist Center) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal had said in the course of a party training.
Dr Mahat said an agreement has been made even for the upcoming District Coordination Committee (DCC) elections, calling on the party’s rank and file to be committed to this agreement. "Let us follow with commitment the agreement reached among the coalition leaders," he reiterated.
The NC spokesperson said that anti-coalition activities have taken place as an exception in a few places.
