Kathmandu, Sept 25: General-Secretary of the CPN-UML Shankar Pokhrel has said the people's mandate was necessary in order to form a government under a strong national party rather than a coalition government for political stability in the country.
Addressing the inaugural session of the first convention of the Bagmati Province Committee of the CPN-UML, he urged the cadres to involve themselves in activities to make the party the first party in coming days.
The UML General Secretary further said, "The UML's attention is not now focused on forming the government. It is focused on the country's development, prosperity and political stability by establishing the UML as a strong national force."
Arguing that social anarchy taking place in society is oriented towards dismantling our unique culture, he clarified that the main concern of the UML is to make society's psychology disciplined and promote strong national unity through nation building.
UML Chairperson KP Sharma Oli inaugurated the convention by flying a drone carrying a banner of the convention.
Present on the occasion were senior Vice-chairman Ishwor Pokharel, Vice-chairpersons Ashtalaxmi Shakya, Surendra Pandey and Ram Bahadur Thapa and deputy general-secretaries Pradeep Gyawali and Bishnu Rimal.
