Election becoming challenging for working class and revolutionary forces

CPN (Maoist Center) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said working-class people and revolutionary forces are finding it hard to secure their positions in public posts due to the existing electoral system. As he said, it has been challenging to win the elections for a section of people as the existing electoral system has turned extravagant.

Referring to the report that it was spent some Rs 100 million to win the election of a local rural municipality chair, he said, “It may cost billions of rupees to win the federal election.”

In his address to a program organized at the party central office in Parisdanda today on the memorial day of the founding leader of the Communist Party of Nepal, Nara Bahadur Karmacharya, the former Prime Minister said corruption is being institutionalized because of the existing electoral system and the form of the governance.

“Though the Constitution has institutionalized federal democratic republic, some forces are intending to weaken it and standing against it.”

He said money power and the use of unethical tricks are dominant in the election.

As he said, the party has proceeded with the unification process with those forces having similar ideologies.

The Maoist Center Chair also urged party leaders and cadres to dedicate their time to inform people about pro-people activities undertaken by the incumbent government.

He insisted on working with a vision, ideologies, and plans to consolidate the party presence in the days ahead and was of the view of proving the party a revolutionary touch in practice.
Admitting that the party was marred by several sorts of intra-party deviations, he stressed the need of fighting against such a culture.

The leader recalled Karmacharya as a personality with simplicity, openness, revolutionary zeal, and dedication.

On the occasion, party senior leader Narayan Kaji Shrestha stressed the need of following the path shown by Karmarchaya who, as he described, was the person with ideology, principles, and visions. (RSS)
