Declare polls date sooner, UCPN (Maoist) leader to govt


BIRATNAGAR: UCPN-Maoist leader and ex finance minister Barshaman Pun has demanded the government to fix the CA polls in November date as early as possible. The government also should inform the people as to why the polls were not conducted in June.

Speaking at a press conference organized by the Revolutionary Journalists Association here today, Pun said all political parties should focus on elections to end the ongoing political mess in the country.

He also asked the CPN-Maoist top leaders to make an alliance with the UCPN (Maoist) in the upcoming CA polls to ensure drafting of a pro-people constitution.
