UML Chair Oli appeals vote for Suhang


Mangalbare (Ilam), April 17: CPN (UML) Chairperson KP Sharma Oli has urged the voters in Ilam constituency no 2 to cast their ballot in favor of his party's candidate Suhang Nembang and elect him in the upcoming by-election.     

Addressing the election assembly organized at Mangalbare in Deumai Municipality of Ilam constituency no 2, Chairperson Oli said that Suhang, son of late leader Subashchandra Nembang, was fielded in the April 27's by-election to fulfill late Nembang's dreams and thus appealed for the vote for Suhang.     

It may be noted that parliamentarian elected from the same constituency, Nembang, passed away on September 12, 2023. The by-election is being held in the constituency from where Nembang was elected House of Representatives member.     

Oli, also former Prime Minister, argued that Suhang's victory was necessary to ensure development of the constituency and prosperity of people here.     

He claimed that his party-led government had taken initiatives for elderly allowance, social security allowance and many developmental works including construction of roads. "When I assumed the leadership of the government, I had laid foundation stone for 210 roads linking rural municipalities to their respective headquarters and 396 hospitals in local levels," he said.     

The septuagenarian leader, however, bemoaned, "All our undertakings have been in limbo since we pulled ourselves from the government. All remaining and stagnant works should be carried out after next parliamentary election."     

Similarly, UML Vice-Chairperson Ram Bahadur Thapa 'Badal' opined that the single ethnic identity-based federalism would disrupt ethnic harmony in the country.     

 Likewise, CPN (Maoist Centre) Koshi Province Chairperson Harka Nembang asserted that Suhang, the common candidate of the communist parties, must be elected in the upcoming election to achieve the agenda of bringing together all the communist forces.     

Candidate Suhang, requesting the voters to cast their ballot for him, pledged to work for the development of his constituency and vowed not to do anything that would make the citizens of his constituency put to shame.     

Altogether 19 candidates from 12 political parties including seven independent ones are contesting from the constituency no 2 in Ilam.(RSS)
