KATHMANDU, Dec 7: CPN (UML) Secretary Yogesh Bhattarai has said the big political parties have the onus to keep the nation united.
Addressing the review assembly organized by the Central Publicity Committee constituted for the party's 10th National Convention here today, he reminded that big parties like the UML and Nepali Congress had salvaged the country during major crises in the past.
Describing the UML as a party that also provides leadership to the society outside of the party's sphere, Bhattarai reiterated that it accepts the criticism and suggestions from other parties as well.
UML central member Surya Thapa said the successful holding of the General Convention has taken the party to a new height while another central member Bishnu Rijal said the publicity of the 10th national congress was systematic and effective.
Secretary of the Publicity Committee, Gagan Bista said a report has been prepared incorporating the works carried out by the publicity department and their review.
Press Chautari Nepal President Ganesh Basnet suggested making the works related to publicity more effective in the coming days by increasing the availability of resources.
The CPN (UML), the main opposition party in parliament, organized its 10th General Convention from November 26 to 30 in Chitwan.
