KATHMANDU, May 10: Prime Minister and Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba has appealed to one and all to actively participate in the May 13 local level election, vote for NC candidates and make them victorious.

In his appeal today, the NC President claimed that citizens got an opportunity to form a local government on their own following a long struggle for democracy under the NC leadership.  

He called on eligible voters to exercise their franchise confidently in the local level elections meant for institutionalizing and consolidating the federal democratic republic achieved through tremendous struggles and dedication. He went on to say that history made it clear that movements and campaigns either be political, or socio-economic that ended with progressive results in the country were concluded under the NC leadership and the NC's decisive role was significant in every political movement and their success in the nation.  

"The latest political developments in the country are sufficient to say that the protection of the Constitution that was promulgated by the Constituent Assembly with the direct people's participation was ensured under the NC leadership when the House was under the frequent siege of a totalitarian ruler who imprudently dissolved it time and again by stepping on the country's main law.   

"The five-party political alliance was forged against the backdrop of such an insolent move and we all are aware of the existing situation that demands the continuation of it," he said in the appeal. 

Stating that the NC was dedicated to political and government stability, the NC President said the party had resolutions for the commercialization and modernization of agriculture, promotion of tourism sector and hydropower production sectors, and also for investment in the productive sector and the creation of jobs within the country.

The appeal reads, "The government formed under the leadership of NC for the protection of democracy and constitution fulfilled its commitment to provide vaccines against COVID-19 to the general public within April 13, 2022.

'NC walks the talk'

He shared that the government has become successful in fulfilling the desire of Kathmandu folks by distributing drinking water within May 14, 2022 from the Melamchi Drinking Water Project. 

"The NC has proved that it does what it says. It does not keep the voters under the illusion of cheap popularity. Our balanced foreign policy has increased trust and confidence in the international community. Doors of additional possibilities of international cooperation and investment are opened in infrastructure development with the passage of MCC from parliament. Remarkable activities are being done in favor of good-governance by discouraging corruption", reads the appeal.  

Expressing commitment that the NC will not make any compromise with anyone in order to make local governments legally strong and prosperous, he clarified that non-political and undemocratic activities by keeping parliament hostage are its obstacles. 

The NC President said, "NC is the heartbeat of the general public. We do not talk more, but we work more. Capable local government: Prosperous Villages, cities is our main slogan.  I appeal to the voters to make NC candidates victorious by casting their votes on the 'tree', the election symbol of the Nepali Congress."
