HETAUDA, June 21: Nepali Congress district presidents have suggested to the party to reorganize the party structure in line with federalism and end ‘faction politics’ in the party.
At a gathering of the party’s district presidents in Hetauda, the participants asked the party leadership to amend the party statute in a bid to expand party structure in line with the country’s constitution.
According to NC central committee member Shiva Humagain, district presidents also demanded that the top party leaders need to publicly give a message of unity among them. The meeting also cautioned the party leadership against the risk of communist autocracy in the country.
Rudra Bahadur Khadka of Dolakha and Krishna KC of Kaski among other district presidents stressed the need for strengthening the party organization at the grassroots for reviving the party’s lost hold across the country.
NC Spokesperson Biswaprakash Sharma said that mahasamiti meeting of the party in August will amend the party statute by accommodating the suggestions received at the Hetauda meeting. He also informed that both party president Sher Bahadur Deuba and senior leader Ram Chandra Paudel addressing the gathering stressed the need for internal unity in the party.
Earlier, eight central committee members of the NC in a joint letter to all district presidents urged them to press for convening early general convention of the party.
