Prime Minister and Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has warned that the leaders who betrayed party during local elections would face action.
Addressing a discussion programme organized today as part of party's preparation of local level election in Province No 2, President Deuba said, the party was defeated in many places in the first and second rounds of local level elections because of the betrayal by its own leaders.
Those working against party's success would be punished by forming a discipline committee, he warned.
President Deuba directed all leaders and cadres to be united to emerge victorious in Province No 2.
On the occasion, senior leader Ramchandra Poudel said the local election was imperative to ensure rights to the suppressed people. Even the Madhes-centric political parties would participate in the election this time, he expressed belief.
He urged the leadership to pick election candidates by rising above the interest of factions.
General Secretary Dr Sashank Koirala also expressed confidence that NC would stand top in the results of Province No 2 elections.
