RJPN-FSFN alliance will bring majority from Jhapa to Kanchanpur: Sonal


KATHMANDU, Oct 18: Jitendra Sonal, General Secretary of Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) has claimed that the joint alliance of RJPN and Federal Socialist Forum Nepal (FSFN) will bring majority from Jhapa to Kanchanpur in the upcoming federal and provincial elections.

“Province 2 will have RJPN and FSFN alliance government,” he claimed while speaking during an interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal on Wednesday.

“People will elect us since our party is carrying the agenda of constitution amendment and development of Madhes. There is no doubt we will emerge victorious in this region,” added Sonal.

Earlier this month, the two regional parties, RJPN and reached an understanding among themselves to forge electoral alliances in core Madhes constituencies on 50/50 basis.

“But we are also looking forward to make poll alliance with other parties in the constituencies our parties are relatively weak,” said Sonal adding that the parites expected for alliance must be supporter of constitution amendment.

“Seats sharing depend on the ground reality of the constituencies. Nepali Congress must show some flexibility in province 2; the RJPN-FSFN alliance will be flexible in other constituencies,” he added.

On the occasion, Sonal also said that there was no meaning for the CPN (Maoist Center) ministers to remain in the government. He said, “It is better of the Maoist ministers resign immediately since they have no moral ground to stay in the cabinet.”

“They have said that they will not resign from the cabinet unless the government guarantees the elections within the slated date. But, I think they are only doing drama,” he added.
