The Nepali Congress (NC) has called on all political parties subscribing to democratic thoughts to participate in the broader democratic alliance.
A meeting of the NC central work execution committee took place in Baluwatar concluded that though polarisation between the democratic and leftist political forces was not appropriate at time of implementing the constitution by formally taking the peace process to the end, the party realised the need of an unity among democratic forces with no any option left as the Communist parties have already headed towards that path.
The meeting chaired by Prime Minister and Party President Sher Bahadur Deuba was attended by senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel, General Secretary Dr Shashank Koirala and treasurer Sita Devi Yadav, among others.
Discussions have started in the meeting to incorporate in the broader democratic alliance all the parties that hold the view that one-party system is not right.
The Nepali Congress, the Rastriya Janashakti Party, Rastriya Prajatantra Party, Rastriya Prajatantra Party (Democratic), the Federal Socialist Forum Nepal and the Nepal Democratic Forum had through a joint meeting decided to participate in the democratic alliance.
Likewise, a meeting of the NC central work execution committee has been called for Friday morning (8 am) to hold discussion on the subjects in relation to the arrangement for picking candidates for the upcoming House of Representatives and State Assemblies elections, and forging a broader democratic alliance, said Chief Secretary of the NC central office, Krishna Prasad Poudel.
