Paudel stresses on picking best candidates for CA election


RATNANAGAR: Nepali Congress vice president Ram Chandra Paudel has stressed on the need of selecting capable and qualified candidates in the upcoming Constituent Assembly election.

Stating that the party had to face defeat due to many weaknesses in the past, vice president Paudel instructed the party cadres to select the candidates with the thinking that the party is above the individual.

Vice president Paudel, who arrived here to attend the Central Convention of Nepal Trade Union Congress-Independent, said this in a meeting with party cadres on Monday.

He cautioned the party cadres that the present time was not for wrangling on the party’s internal dispute but a time to participate in the election as a single block.

He said that a democratic constitution would not be possible in the country until the Nepali Congress wins in the election.

The Nepali Congress vice president reiterated that the election to the Second Constituent Assembly would take place on the designated date itself at any cost.

The top leaders are meeting the party cadres in the district in a bid to resolve the dispute in the Nepali Congress Chitwan district committee.
