Govt responsible to create election environment, Deuba says


KATHMANDU: Just a day after Chairman of the Interim Election Government Khil Raj Regmi said that the political parties were solely responsible to create conducive environment for polls, Nepali Congress senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba has countered the opinions of Regmi and said the government should create the environment for holding the Constituent Assembly (CA) election.

Speaking at a programme organised to welcome the new entrants at his residence in Budhanilkantha on Monday, former Prime Minister Deuba said that the environment should be created to hold the election by the government as there was no time to hold the election by forming another government .

Saying that the constitution should be promulgated from the CA, Deuba said that the dissenting parties should be brought onboard the election process by listening to their grievances.

Some 50 people, associated with various political parties from different districts including Baitadi, Kailali and Kanchanpur, who joined the Nepali Congress, were welcomed at the programme organised by the Baitadi-Kathmandu Liaison Committee.
