GAUR, Dec 4: Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) leader and a House of Representative candidate from Rautahat constituency-1, Anil Jha on Monday said that Nepali Congress has morally lost its ground to seek votes in Madhes as the ruling party has not carried out development in the region.
“NC blocked the development of Gaur. I urge all the Madhesi voters not to vote NC in the upcoming elections,” said Jha while speaking at an election interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal in Gaur of Rautahat.
“NC has always tricked Madhesi people. But now, the people have realized this. Therefore, they will not vote NC,” he added.
He also accused the ruling party NC of forcefully promulgating the constitution going against the will of Madhes and Madhesi people.
Speaking on the occasion, Jha’s competitor and NC candidate Krishna Yadav backfired at Jha saying: “Leaders like Mahantha Thakur and Upendra Yadav were to be blamed for depriving Madhesi people of their rights.”
“They talk big when they visit in Madhes but after they return to the capital they only pay attention to their personal benefit and compromise with big parties,” added Yadav.
Arguing that NC was the only party who could fight for Madhesi people, he urged the voters to vote NC to amend constitution.
Likewise, Nepali Janata Party’s chairperson appealed the voters to elect him instead of NC and RJPN as he was the only leader to work in the development of Madhes.
