Rul­ing NC un­veils its elec­tion man­i­festo, crit­i­cises left al­liance

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

The rul­ing Nepali Congress (NC) has se­verely crit­i­cized the left al­liance in its elec­tion man­i­festo re­leased for the up­com­ing fed­eral par­lia­men­tary and pro­vin­cial polls sched­uled for Novem­ber 26 and De­cem­ber 7 on Mon­day. The NC has termed the left al­liance as the man­i­fes­ta­tion of lust for power. It has termed the Maoist-Cen­tre as 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. It lashed the claims of the left al­liance that the al­liance was for po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity stat­ing that the dom­i­nance of com­mu­nist in the par­lia­ment and the pres­i­den­tial sys­tem would not guar­an­tee po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity in the coun­try. It said the left al­liance can 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 CPNUML has been 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 was a tes­ti­mony to this. The NC said that Pushpa Ka­mal Da­hal has be­come the cen­tre of un­sta­ble po­lit­i­cal equa­tion, al­liance for power ac­qui­si­tion and ide­o­log­i­cal am­bi­gu­ity in the coun­try. “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 man­i­festo. The NCs has in­cor­po­rated am­bi­tious plans for eco­nomic pros­per­ity, tourism devel­op­ment, youth en­trepreneur­ship, and mod­ern­iza­tion of agri­cul­ture in its man­i­festo.
