Koirala will lead Congress: Shashank
Sep 24, 2018-
Nepali Congress (NC) General Secretary Shashank Koirala has claimed that the next party president will be elected from the Koirala family.
Speaking at an interaction programme organised in Butwal on Sunday, the NC leader said a Koirala family member would contest for the NC presidency in the upcoming general convention as per the wish of many party activists and well-wishers.
“One among Shekharda (NC central member Shekhar Koirala), me or Sujata will contest for the party chief in consensus,” he said.
The NC general secretary said that the NC cadres were worried due to weak party organisation and factionalism.
The power of the party’s central president should be decentralised to make the organisation strong, he added.
Shashank also criticised the KP Sharma Oli-led government for “working against the spirit of federal ruling system” and suppressing press freedom. (PR)
