KATHMANDU, May 9: CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has termed the upcoming local level election, slated for May 13, as a struggle between progress and backwardness.

Conveying a message today, Dahal urged the people to vote for the party’s election symbol and the candidates nominated by the party as well as not to take the elections lightly. 

Chairman Dahal wished that the upcoming local elections would be a cornerstone for building a prosperous Nepal with social justice to take the Singha Durbar-centered rights to the doorsteps of the people. 

“At this time, anti-federalism and anti-inclusive proportional representation forces are conspiring against the constitution and historic achievements. We have taken the election as a battle of progress and regression for the defense of the constitution and the federal democratic republic,” Dahal said in his message. 

Stating that the people have not yet experienced federalism, inclusive, proportional representation and social justice they have been seeking, Dahal said that the challenge of the party is to achieve prosperity and social justice by ensuring development, health, education and employment based on the local characteristics while also empowering the local level. 

He said that the people would not be able to experience democracy in the true sense of the word without eradicating all forms of exploitation and discrimination, shedding of blood and sweat in foreign countries by Nepalis, subsidy production in agriculture, farmers’ pension, industrialization and employment from rural self-reliant economy, in order to end all forms of exploitation and discrimination.
