The Nepali Congress (NC) has insisted that the local poll should be organised in a single phase.

At a joint meeting of the party central committee and the parliamentary party held today to garner suggestions for the election manifesto, a majority of party central members and lawmakers said the talks about holding the election in two rounds were just intended at foiling the election

The participants of the meeting urged the party leadership to sort disputes surfaced regarding the hierarchy of two deputy prime ministers. The issue has sent a negative message to the public, they added.

on the occasion, party president Sher Bahadur Deuba and senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel urged all the leaders and cadres of the party not to doubt on the holding of the election on the stipulated date. They also directed the party rank and file to wholeheartedly go for the elections.

Comments were also made in the meeting regarding the government's performance and the ministers representing the party since works were not carried out as per the expectations of the people. 


Party central committee members and lawmakers also questioned from where the rumours of the five-point proposal regarding addressing the Madhes demands came when the four-point amendment proposal is already registered in the parliament for the same purpose.
