UML Chairman KP Oli attends a program in Kathmandu on Tuesday.
KATHMANDU: CPN-UML Chairperson KP Sharma Oli has claimed that his party will secure victory in 60 to 70 percent of local level in the upcoming election.
Addressing a meeting of the party-affiliated All Nepal Women’s Association in Kathmandu on Tuesday, Oli said the UML would, without anyone else’s support, win 60 to 70 percent of the local levels.
Similarly, he stressed that hanging a tag of communist did not make one a real communist until one was clear in his/her ideology.
According to Oli, some selfish elements that saw a fresh mandate as regression have now collapsed.
Terming the ruling coalition as an anti-communist entity, he said the country was embroiled in a tussle between people’s mandate and judicial mandate. Stating that the Nepal’s nationality was in peril due to the incumbent government, he called for change of the government.
Clarifying that he was in favor of promoting women, who currently hold various vice-presidental and deputy mayoral posts, he advised against initiating unhealthy campaigns in this regard.
Oli also claimed that his party had championed the issue of equal rights and participation of women. He added the preliminary idea of 33 percent women participation at all levels was also first forwarded by UML-affiliated women’s association.
