KATHMANDU, March 13: Nepali Congress (NC) senior leader Ramchandra Poudel has said it was unfortunate to defer the general convention of the party in one or another pretext.
At a press meet organized here today by the Nepal Press Union Baglung chapter, he commented that Nepal's democratic system has been weakened as it has not been possible to hold the general convention of the NC on time.
He further said that the country should be freed from anomalies surfacing in politics at the earliest possible. "Had the general convention of the NC been held on time, a golden chance would have emerged for the party to lead the nation by now. The party itself has been without the general convention now. It is saddening to leave the party building process in a lurch".
An important responsibility has come along for the NC in the recent political context, he said, adding that the current crisis would be averted through the parliamentary process.
He said that discussions among NC, NCP (Maoist Center) and Janata Samanjbadi Party were underway for power sharing in the latest political situation.
