‘Left alliance has no goal of establishing single party authoritarianism’

Dr Rajan Bhattarai, Kathmandu constituency-4

KATHMANDU, Nov 22: Left alliance candidate from the Kathmandu constituency-4, Dr Rajan Bhattarai has said the communist parties had given up the idea of one-party authoritarian rule some 25 years ago.

Speaking at a face-to-face interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal at Sukedhara on Wednesday, Bhattarai further noted that they have opted for bringing overall change in the country by winning the hearts of people rather not through wars.

“We had also suffered much to bring democracy in the country. We have forged the communist alliance to introduce socialism not communism in the country. We have no goal to reinstate communist rule”, he added.

He also claimed that CPN-UML Chairperson KP Sharma Oli will be the Prime Minster from the left alliance after election.
