KATHMANDU, Nov 2: The CPN-UML is going to the voters with the major resolution 'Protection and Promotion of National Interest: Promotion of Stability, Good-governance and Development' in the upcoming parliamentary election.
The House of Representatives and provincial assembly elections are scheduled to be held on November 20. Chairperson of CPN-UML, KP Sharma Oli appealed to the voters to think seriously before casting their precious votes.
At a program organized by the major opposition party to unveil its election manifesto on Tuesday, Chairperson Oli recalled that voters, by casting their votes in favor of political stability and prosperity, had made his party the largest in the previous parliamentary elections.
Oli while launching the manifesto digitally viewed that the upcoming parliamentary elections were a decisive opportunity to liberate the country from the cycle of various crises. "It is an apt time to show the world that we are capable of resolving our country's problems ourselves."
Stating that the upcoming election going to be conducted amid a serious and sensitive national situation held a special significance, the septuagenarian leader said that every vote cast in the election would determine the future course of the country.
The party, in its manifesto, has claimed that the government led by his party, amid challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, was most dynamic, productive and successful and succeeded in implementing the constitution in a short span of time.
According to the party, the provincial and local governments were dynamic, bringing on board the disgruntled parties to follow the constitution, agreement forged in implementation of constitution and acceptance of the national charter among others during the CPN-UML leadership.
The manifesto further mentions publication of new political map of Nepal, initiating diplomatic dialogues to take back the encroached lands (Lipulek, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura) and Nepal's quantitative development in expansion and consolidation of ties with foreign countries were one of the achievements during UML's government.
The party has claimed in the manifesto that the international sector commending the post-quake operation during the UML leadership, continuous economic growth over 7 per cent after the formation of UML government and huge increase in foreign investment were testimony to the party's effective delivery.
