KATHMANDU, August 28: Nepali Congress (NC) leader Dr Shekhar Koirala has said that the formation of alliance among political parties for the upcoming elections is today's need of the country. 

The NC will forge an election alliance and this is the most pressing need of the hour, he said while inaugurating a training session organized today by the NC Morang constituency-6.  

NC should get at least 100 seats in the November 20 federal parliamentary election, he said, adding a deal should be made with the coalition parties accordingly. 

NC should keep with itself the constituencies the party won in the federal parliament and province assembly polls in 2074 BS, he said, laying emphasis that the party's representation should be ensured in the federal parliament or the provincial assemblies in all seven provinces. 

The party and the government should work to maintain good governance and transparency keeping their responsibilities for the people at the center, he suggested.
