Kathmandu, Sept 30 : Nepali Congress leader Dr Shekhar Koirala has said the party’s Jagaran (awareness) campaign has caused a further energy boost among the cadres.
Talking to journalists here today, he spoke the need of organising the party’s general convention as soon as possible to take the level of restored energy to a new height.
He was of the view that the party would be in trouble if it failed to see the general convention soon.
“The time demands the party to raise voices in favour of the people,” adding that time had come to hit the street and parliament.
As he said, the general conventions of party student wing Nepal Student Union and other wings such as Tarun Dal, Women Association and Dalit Association need to be held on time to make the party presence more effective.
The party was not supposed to be in difficulty due to the leadership’s weakness. “Let’s elect the leadership on time,” he said, claiming that status quo could no more guide the party.
“People’s right to freedom of expression was not squeezed even during the Panchayat regime”, he said, underlining the need of speaking against any effort aims to suppress the freedom of opinion and expression.
