Elections fever grips UML in Kathmandu valley


KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu Valley Coordination Committee of the CPN-UML has started preparations for the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) elections from today.

The committee is organising an extensive cadres’ meeting of Kathmandu Valley today under the campaign.

The meeting was called to exert pressure to declare date for the CA election and to demonstrate unity among the party leaders and encourage the party cadres morally, said Secretary of the committee, Sanu Kumar Shrestha.

The UML would mobilize the party cadres raising the issues of public concern in the election campaign by learning lesson from the party’s defeat in the previous CA election, said Secretary Shrestha.

UML Chairman Jhalanath Khanal, senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, General Secretary Ishwor Pokhrel, and Secretary Yubaraj Gyawali, among others, are scheduled to address the programme.
