KATHMANDU: Against the backdrop of Prime Minister (PM) Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda’s recent coalition shift, Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba has assumed a pivotal role in shaping Nepal’s political future by actively engaging with key leaders and emphasizing inclusivity.

As political dynamics in Nepal undergo a significant transformation with the Maoist Center’s departure, NC President Deuba embarked on a mission to navigate the complexities and form a democratic alliance.

The recent realignment of political forces prompted NC President Deuba to collaborate closely with democratic forces, including the Madhesh-centric parties, aiming to create an alliance that not only reflects diverse perspectives but also fosters a sense of unity and inclusiveness.

Deuba’s “serious talks” with influential leaders of Madesh-based political parties, such as Mahantha Thakur, CK Raut, and Resham Chaudhary, on Wednesday afternoon signify a strategic effort to bridge political gaps and ensure representation from various sectors of society.

The discussions held at Deuba’s residence in Budhanilakantha centered around creating an alliance that not only accommodates differing ideologies but also actively addresses the diverse needs of the Nepali populace.

Adding weight to this initiative, prominent NC leaders Dr. Shekhar Koirala and Gagan Thapa participated in the talks, signaling a united front within the Nepali Congress.

Their involvement underscores the party’s commitment to shaping an alliance that transcends traditional political boundaries.

In response to Deuba’s rallying call, leaders of Madesh-based parties engaged in extensive deliberations, emphasizing the critical importance of unity among democratic forces.

The discussions highlighted the shared vision for a democratic alliance that seeks to address pressing issues, promote social harmony, and ultimately pave the way for a more inclusive and representative political landscape in Nepal.

As Nepal stands at the crossroads of political change, Deuba’s efforts take center stage in shaping the trajectory of the country’s democratic journey.
