UML to forge alliance with like-minded parties in polls

BHAKTAPUR: Senior leader of CPN (UML) Madhav Kumar Nepal has said that there was no alternative to moving ahead for fresh elections to the Constituent Assembly (CA) after fixing the number of constituencies and completing the registration of biometric voters’ name list.

Speaking at an interaction programme organized by UML affiliated Intellect Council in Bhaktapur, leader Nepal said the dissenting political parties should be brought into consensus before conducting the CA polls.

He reiterated that the UML could forge an alliance with the like-minded political parties in the elections. The UML should take initiative to welcome the dissenting leaders from the UCPN (Maoist), the UML leader added.

He also cautioned the UML leaders not become closer with the UCPN (Maoist) as that was weakening the party.
