Nepali Congress election manifesto says no view towers, no nepotism

Kathmandu, April 24

Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba’s Nepali Congress party has made public its manifesto for the local elections scheduled to be held next month.

Party President Deuba along with senior leaders of the party made the manifesto public at a press meet in Kathmandu on Sunday.

In the manifesto, the party, in addition to what it promises to do at the local level, has also mentioned what it does not want to do. The list interestingly mentions not building view towers as its priority as the CPN-UML-led government had earned notoriety for spending money on view towers that do not make any substantial difference in people’s lives.

Likewise, the party says elected people’s representatives will not give jobs to any of their relatives at the local level.

Party’s General Secretary Gagan Thapa, who led the manifesto drafting process, had explained the key content of the manifesto.

Like the UML’s, the Nepali Congress manifesto has also discussed the achievements of the government led by the party. In particular, the party says the endorsement of the controversial MCC deal was also its achievement.
