Change in living conditions possible only in republican system: president Deuba


By Sher Bahadur Rai, Okhaldhunga, Dec. 5: Nepali Congress (NC) president and former Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has viewed that the country can be developed easily if federalism is operated efficiently.

Leader Deuba said so while inaugurating the first district convention of the party and the party office in the district.

"The nation has already stepped into the democratic republic," he said, "This system will bring changes in the living conditions of the people."

The former Prime Minister said that the present polity has increased ownership of the indigenous people, Madhesis, women, Dalit and other marginalized people and that it should be further strengthened.

Speaking on the occasion, Shekhar Koirala, NC leader, pointed at the need for increasing employment by developing the agriculture sector as unemployment was rising in the country.

He also said that the NC would raise issues pertinent to NCell transactions in the parliament.

General Secretary of the NC, Gagan Thapa, pledged that the NC would safeguard the present democratic republican system with federalism.

He highlighted that the NC should play an important role in curbing corruption in the country.

He viewed that steps should be taken to improve the NC as the party will be heading the federal government soon as per the agreement of the ruling coalition.
