KATHMANDU: UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda has said that the party requires a clear majority in the upcoming CA polls to ensure a pro-people constitution.

“Our party lacked an idea when I was the Prime Minister and there were many obstacles when party Vice Chairman Baburam Bhattarai was in that post, now the party has the experience of running the state and we need majority in the election,” he said.

Addressing a program organised by the party affiliated Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry here today, Prachanda said the party has already made homework to secure majority of seats in the election.

The announcement for fresh election was for giving a way out to the nation from existing crisis, he said, reasoning that if there was no delay made in announcing the election date.

The party has approved the strategy of production, development and management with a view to preventing the party colleagues from becoming bourgeois, he said.
