KATHMANDU — The ruling Nepali Congress (NC) has released its election manifesto on Monday for the upcoming federal parliamentary and provincial polls slated for November 27 and December 6.
The ruling party has incorporated economic prosperity, tourism development, youth entrepreneurship, and modernization of agriculture, among other agendas, in its manifesto.
Lashing out at the recently formed left alliance in ins its election manifesto, the ruling party has stated 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.
The NC manifesto said that the Maoist Centre is an opportunist seeking short-term political gains by taking advantage of political instability. It 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.
The manifesto has also claimed that the CPN-UML and Maoist Centre have been proven as parties protecting institutional corruption in a systematic manner.
“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’s manifesto reads.
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.Follow @gorkhapost
