Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, also the Nepali Congress President, has said the victory of the party in the second phase of local level elections was imperative for the effective implementation of the constitution.
In his separate addresses to the election gathering held at Phoolbari and Manhera of Dhangadhi Sub Metropolitan City Friday, the NC President said the local level elections were interlinked with the constitution implementation and therefore the party’s victory is a must.
Deuba has said that Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal(RJPN) will partake in the third-phase local level elections though the constitution is not amended.
Deuba is in Mahendranagar in course of election campaign aimed at convincing voters to vote for the candidates representing Nepali Congress.
“After second-phase local level elections, an effort will be made to amend the constitution. The constitution has not been amended yet due to lack of two-third majority. The government and my party will reach out to CPN-UML to ensure the amendment of the constitution after the June-28 local level elections”, said Deuba.
The NC’s contender for the Chief and Deputy-Chief of the Dhangadi Sub-Metropolis, Nrip Od and Shushila Mishra Bhatta respectively, parliamentarians Ishwori Neupane, Buddhi Sagar Chaudhary, NC Dhangadi Chapter President Nara Narayan Shah among others were present at the programme.
Deuba, who has already assumed the leadership of the government as the Prime Minister for thrice in the past, visited Dhangadi for the first time since he assumed office on June 8 as the fourth Prime Minister.
He also addressed election programmes in Attariya in Dhangadi today itself.
