khanal receiving memo

KATHMANDU: CPN (UML) Chairman Jhalanath Khanal has said that there would be no talks with any parties on the agendas to change the incumbent government and put off the November 19 CA election.

Receiving a memorandum submitted by the Reporters Club today, Khanal said, “There will be no compromise in government change and CA poll date postponement.”

Club’s Chairman Rishi Dhamala-led delegation submitted a memorandum to Chairman Khanal to ensure CA poll by bringing all agitating parties on board the election.

Khanal also set the deadline of 16 September to hold talks with the dissenting parties.

The UML chair said that only election would end the current political deadlock.

Asked about some UML leaders’ opinion on election date postponement, Khanal said, “Its for sure. Election will hold on November 19. None need to cast doubts in it.”

Khanal also informed that the party would unveil election strategy soon after holding a meeting soon.

On a separate context, Khanal warned to take action to goons, undisciplined and anarchic in the Youth Association of Nepal (YAN).

He, however, did not pronounce the name of YAN Chairman Mahesh Basnet.

“Sister organizations should run based on UML’s principles,” he added.
