Kaski, Dec 2 : Newly-elected member of the House of Representatives, Bidhya Bhattarai said she would not let down people's hope and optimism. While receiving the certificate of victory after being elected to the Member of Parliament from Kaski constituency-2, Bhattarai said she would spend her remaining life in the service of people who trusted her with votes to ensure her win.
"There are still many challenges in politics. Political culture is explicitly lacking. Youths have lost their trust in politics. The present day politics should address the needs and interests of new generation and listen to the aspirations of the people", she added.
She further said the voters also had shown respect to the campaigner of 'Prosperous Nepal and Happy Nepali' and her life partner Rabindra Adhikari in the by-election held on 30 November. She expressed grief over the demise of the workers who lost their lives while constructing road at Pokhara Metropolis-20 on Sunday and pad tribute to the departed soul. ---
