Kathmandu, Jan. 9 Newly elected central member of the Nepali Congress and Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers Umesh Shrestha has said that the party president Sher Bahadur Deuba has an opportunity to make history by correcting the shortcomings of the past and addressing the aspirations of the people, leaders and cadres.
Talking to Rishi Dhamala, a journalist for Nepali Debate, a program on Nepali Radio Network (NRN), Shrestha said, “Party president Sher Bahadur Deuba has got a lot of votes. This is the last chance for him. There is an opportunity to make history by transforming the party with new thinking and new style according to the aspirations of the cadres while correcting yesterday’s shortcomings. ”
Party president Deuba said that the faction should be formed within two months. He said, “Now, to show that the Deuba faction is over, all the appointments, division of labor, formation of departments and election of fraternal organizations should be done as soon as possible.” The central office should be made very functional. ”
He stressed on the need to find out how to take the party in the next four years by combining experience with the youth, Jose Janger and Purana. He said, “We have given up trade and business and joined the Nepal Congress. This is also an opportunity for us to serve the Nepali Congress and the Nepali people. Now we have to rise above yesterday’s individualistic thinking and give responsibility to the worthy and capable. ”
Shrestha also said that Chairman Deuba would not side with anyone. He added, “Even yesterday, when he tried to include all the leaders, he had to become a prisoner of indecision. I also had to face some notoriety. Now the pattern is not the same as yesterday. He also had to be allowed to work. Now the losing leader has to accept the winner rather than the loser. Don’t just protest, stop making decisions, stop forming departments. This is the mandate of the 14th General Convention. Now the Congress should be shown as the carrier of prosperity. We must lead the transformation and change. ”
