Pokhara, Jan 21: Kaski district has sensed the fever of upcoming 13 general convention of the Nepali Congress.
There has been tough competition in the ground to claim leadership with the party’s general convention from center, district to local (municipality, village and ward) coming closer.
The public places from party office to coffee shops here are seen people talking about future leadership of the NC from ward to centre.
With high mobility of top leaders of the party with programmes in Kaski in view of the general convention, the district has seen a heated election environment.
Kaski Congress has been an attraction for all now as it is the centre of the western development region having multifarious influences on surrounding districts. All four regions of the district have higher number of active membership this time in comparison to the 12th general convention.
Currently there are 3,748 active members of the party in Kaski region 1, 2,340 in region 2, 2,765 in region 3 and 3,090 in region 4. There has been no dispute on active membership.
There seems much discussion on who will take the helm of the party rather than what should be its policy and programme in the upcoming general convention. Party cadres are throwing their bat for the able leadership to discharge the role of sustaining changes brought out in the country under the NC leadership many times.
Former President of NC Kaski Shukraraj Sharma said the need of the hour is to give chance to a leadership which can manage the internal differences in the party and create energy for the effective implementation of the new constitution. “The leadership should embrace change and overcome challenges facing the country”, Sharma noted.
Similarly, NC Kaski President and lawmaker Yagya Bahadur Thapa asserted the country has expected vibrant leadership from the Congress that could sustain the significant changes brought under the NC leadership. “Today’s need is the capable leadership to make the party dynamic with noble policy and programme”, he added.
