KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress (NC) General Secretary Gagan Kumar Thapa has stressed the need for holding the Presidential election on time.

There have been efforts in place to postpone the poll under the pretext of contravention of the constitution and election laws, he reasoned at a gathering at Damauli, Tanahun.

“Presidential election should take place in time. This time, the NC tries to make its candidate for the post of President victorious.”

Saying the party would take a decision in choosing a candidate for the coveted post within some days, he urged all political parties to make its candidate victorious.

“In fact, we have expected the ruling Maoist Centre to vote for the candidate fielded by the NC,” he said adding, “It is because Pushpa Kamal Dahal won the recently held parliamentary elections from Gorkha district with the support of NC’s votes. I also won from Kathmandu constituency with the support of Maoist Centre’s votes.”

Stating that the Maoist Centre should vote for the NC’s candidate for the post of President as the party had supported PM Dahal to get a vote of confidence from the House of Representatives, he said, “Political balance will be maintained if this takes place.”

In another context, the leader viewed that the NC should move ahead united as the party he said could not be strong being united with other parties as past evidence showed.

The party would reach out to people with new programs, he said.
