DHANUSHA, Sept 11: Nepali Congress leader Bimalendra Nidhi has accused CPN-UML and its Chair KP Sharma Oli of being enemy of federalism.
“UML is an anti-Madhes party which doesn’t want federalism. Therefore, people of Province 2 will not vote UML. I can confidently say that UML will not rise again in Madhes,” said Nidhi while addressing a press conference organized by Media Center in Dhanusha on Monday.
The former home minister also accused UML of breaking its own public commitment that it would cooperate in constitution amendment for making the Nepal’s constitution acceptable to all.
“UML betrayed us at the moment of fulfilling its promises. It is why constitution could not be amended,” added Nidhi.
He also claimed that Nepali Congress was the only party who can provide resolution of Madhes problems. He added, “The efforts of amending constitution will be done in future as well.
He further said that NC was aiming to win in 100 local levels in province 2.
Nidhi also said that UML senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal’s visited North Korea recently in suggestion of Chinese government.
“North Korea is sanctioned by the United Nations. China is the partner of Pyongyang and it wants to engage UML in North Korea’s activities,” he added.
“It clarifies that what has guided UML’s nationalism,” continued Nidhi.
He also said that NC had forged alliance with its ruling partner MC in some of the local levels and added that the alliance with MC would be continued even in the elections of Federal Parliament and Province Assembly.
Also speaking on the occasion, Nepali Congress leader Ramesh Lekhak said that the province 2 election is the referendum of friends and foes of federalism.
Stating that he has already visited five districts of the province for his election campaign, he claimed that NC would be the first party in the third round of polls.
The Media Center had acknowledged leaders Nidhi, Lekhak, journalist Rishi Dhamala, leaders Dharmendra Jha and Badri Sighdel on the occasion.
