RAJBIRAJ, June 1: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Jitendra Narayan Dev has said the schedule for the second phase of local level elections fixed at June 28 will not be changed again.
Speaking at a press release organized by Saptari chapter of Federation of Nepali Journalists, Minister Dev expressed that opinion.
He also expressed the belief that Rastriya Janata Party(RJP) will also take part in the second-phase local level election.
“I am hundred percent confident that RJP will partake in the second phase-local elections slated for June 28. I am reaching out to RJP leaders frequently. The election date rescheduled second time has been rescheduled again at their behest”, said Dev.
Stating that Madhes-centric parties including RJP have given up their certain previous stances with a view to ending the current political impasse, he emphasized that the three major parties and the government should also demonstrate a certain degree of flexibility for addressing certain demands of Madhes-based parties.
