Maoist Centre reveals commitment paper
May 6, 2017-
The ruling CPN (Maoist Centre) has officially revealed the party’s 30-point commitment paper for the upcoming local level polls.Unveiling the manifesto in Perisdanda on Friday, party Spokesperson Pampha Bhusal claimed that the all-powerful local levels in the constitution were the result of their armed struggle. Explaining the issues raised in the paper, Bhusal said the Maoist Centre urged the people to back the leadership of the party that championed the agenda.
“Only the party that owns the agenda can implement it. Federalism, republican set up and the empowerment were all established by the Maoist Centre,” she said, adding that after the polls Nepali people could truly feel the taste of republican set up and federalism in the country.
Unlike other parties the Maoist Centre has not promised per capita income and energy, Bhusal said, but has committed to make the local levels developed exploiting the resources available. The party has focused on agricultural developments at all the rural municipalities and municipalities. She said the party’s plans, including one-village-one-model-product and creating job opportunities were also included in the commitment.
According to her , the CPN-UML has betrayed her party at Tanahun district as the party broke all the agreements made before the nomination. “As per the agreement, the Maoist Centre filed its candidacies only on the positions agreed with them. But in breach of the deal, they separately fielded candidates for all the positions,” she said.
She admitted to forging alliances both with the NC and the UML at local levels though the party’s priority was the alliance with ruling coalition partner NC. (PR)
