NC unveils its election manifesto, terms CPN (MC) as opportunist

Meanwhile, the Nepali Congress (NC) has released its election manifesto for the upcoming federal parliamentary and provincial polls slated for November 27 and December 6.

Making public its manifesto in the Capital on Monday, the ruling party has lashed out at the recently formed left alliance as the manifestation of lust for power. The NC has stated that Maoist Centre is an opportunist seeking short-term political gains by taking advantage of political instability.

In its manifesto, the NC has claimed that the CPN-UML and Maoist Centre have been trying to mislead the people by selling the dreams of political stability and economic prosperity to be achieved with the formation of a communist government. “Thus, the dominance of communist in the parliament and the presidential system would not guarantee political stability in the country. Rather it will only been a dangerous experiment to push the country towards a despotic communist rule and a long-term conflict.”

The NC manifesto has claimed that the CPN-UML and Maoist Centre have been proven as parties protecting institutional corruption in a systematic manner. Stating that the CPN-UML has turned into a party promoting crony capitalism, the NC manifesto has remarked that the obstruction by UML and Maoist Centre in passing the Health Profession and Education Bill at the parliament is the latest example of it.

The manifesto has claimed that the Maoist party led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal, in the past decade, has become the centre of unstable political equation, alliance for power acquisition and ideological ambiguity.

“CPN-UML that had termed Madhes movement as a protest for disintegration and issued inappropriate comments against Madhesi people is now gradually falling into a trap of extremism and fake nationalism,” read the NC manifesto.

The Nepali Congress has incorporated economic prosperity, tourism development, youth entrepreneurship, and modernization of agriculture, among other agendas, in its manifesto.
