DHANUSHA, Nov 9: Nepali Congress leader and Dhanusha-3 candidate for parliamentary election Bimalendra Nidhi has claimed that the left alliance will fail to garner majority in the upcoming federal parliament and province assembly elections. The two leftist force CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center) has forged electoral alliance for the November 26 and December 7 elections.

But Nidhi said, “Nepali Congress (NC) candidates will become victorious in all the constituencies across the country. UML-Maoist Center alliance will never gain two-third majority.”

The left alliance is in an attempt to establish one-party ruled communist republic in the country. It’s only their dream. But, NC-led democratic alliance is fighting to keep the federal democratic republic. The election is a referendum between communist republic and democratic system. It’s up to people which system to choose,” added Nidhi while speaking at an interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal in Dhanusha.

Stating that he had struggled for people since his student life, he added, “I have been to jail for people. I have always fought for democracy, republic, federalism and constitution. The voters believe me and will elect me here.”

Nidhi is a popular leader in Madhes. He won the Nepalese legislative election, 1994 and Constitution Assembly election, 2013 from the same constituency, which is a strong base for Nidhi to win election in the constituency.

“If I win the election, I will develop Janakpur as a religious tourism hub and economic center of the country,” he added.

“Not only that, Janakpur should be declared as the capital of province 2. Developing Janakpur as the spiritual, cultural and tourism town will be my first job,” he added.

He further claimed that NC will win in all four constituencies of the district.

Speaking on the occasion, Nidhi also claimed that people will not elect his challenger Rajendra Mahato.

Mahato, whose home town is Sarlahi, is a candidate from Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN). “He is an outsider. Why will people vote him?” said Nidhi.

“What status does he have in Danusha district?” he added.
