Koirala will be elected new NC president: NC leader Rijal

Chitwan, Jan 19: Nepali Congress (NC) leader Dr Minendra Rijal today viewed that upcoming NC General Convention would elect sitting party president Sushil Koirala as party new president.

He said that Koirala-led government completed the historic task of promulgating the constitution through people’s elected body, Constituent Assembly, also fulfilling the aspiration of late democratic fighter and NC leader BP Koirala to promulgate constitution through people’s representatives.
He also said that despite some works remaining uncompleted, it was Koirala’s continuous work that helped make NC a big party in parliament.
Rijal was speaking at a press conference organised by the Chitwan chapter of Nepal Press Union in Chitwan.
In a different context, saying that it was not a time to change the incumbent government, he stated that NC sitting in the opposition would suggest and help the government.
Saying that the government should focus on opening obstructed border points with India at the earliest, he said that it was the government that should speak up on international relations, but not political parties.
