No polls alliance with other parties, NC leader Deuba says

BIRGUNJ: Nepali Congress senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that the NC would not forge alliance for polls with any other political parties.

However, NC leaders including President Sushil Koirala and Vice-President Ram Chandra Poudel have been advocating polls alliance with the UML to garner more seats in the upcoming CA polls.

“Minor understanding in polls cannot be ruled out but polls alliance is not possible,” he said at a press meet here today.

Deuba further said that the erstwhile CA failed to promulgate the new constitution due to minority position of the NC. “This time CA will promulgate new constitution if the NC gets majority,” he claimed.
