Morang: Nepali Congress (NC) General-Secretary Gagan Kumar Thapa said he would continuously put an effort towards changing the party’s parliamentary leader.

Talking to media persons at Biratnagar Airport in Morang today, General-Secretary Thapa argued that the effort to change the party’s parliamentary would be meaningful provided there was support of friends in the party. If their number would meet the criteria to change the leader, it would be materialized, he added.

Thapa, also the former Minister, shared that the party statute had given a space to change the party’s parliamentary leader and there were instances of this provision being used many times. He claimed that he would run the party efficiently as per the need of the country if he was elected the party parliamentary leader.

On a different note, he said that NC would abide by any verdict to be delivered by the Supreme Court regarding the formation of government in the Koshi Province. According to him, the NC had not been able to hold open discussion on the formation of government in the Koshi Province since the NC’s Central Working Committee (CWC) was not taking place which, he opined, had affected various national political issues.

It may be noted that the CPN UML, the major opposition party in the Koshi Province, had filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court against the formation of the government in Koshi Province, calling it ‘unconstitutional’.

The Supreme Court recently ordered the newly formed provincial government not to take any manor decisions that will have a long-term effect. The case is listed for hearing after written replies submitted by the defendants.

Thapa further said that the CWC meeting of the NC would determine the date for the policy convention which, he hoped, would put an end to the political culture of entering electoral alliance within the political parties during the election. He also clarified that the incumbent government would not change, but it must work in the best interest of the people.
