Trishuli, Sept 6: Senior vice-chair of the CPN (UML) Ishwar Pokhrel has said his party is not in a hurry to join the government. Rather than being involved in efforts to toppling or forming the government, the UML is engrossed in the party organisation consolidation campaign, he said while addressing a press conference organized by Press Chautari Nuwakot in Battar today.
“The party does not have the mentality of participating in the present government. We are busy building the organisation to garner majority in the upcoming election rather than in efforts to toppling this government,” said the party senior vice-chair.
The former Deputy Prime Minister said only the UML could fulfill the aspiration of ‘Prosperous Nepal: Happy Nepali’ and the party will not enter into an alliance with parties lacking ‘ideology and agenda.’
He also claimed that there is no discord within the party since it is guided from the leadership to the lowest rung by the agenda and future course of action of the 10th general convention and the development of the People’s Multi-party Democracy for making the party stronger.
