4 April, Kathmandu – Nepali Congress district presidents have intensified preparation to launch nationwide signature campaign if the central committee did not review its decision against the Mahasamiti mandate. Participants at the two-day informal gathering of district presidents that kicked off in Kathmandu on Wednesday said the campaign is mooted to pile pressure on party leadership to withdraw the decision taken against the mandate of Mahasamiti. Amar Singh Pun, NC Rolpa district president, said the gathering also discussed the need to back party leadership to get Mahasamiti mandate reflected through the central committee as per the commitment made earlier. It may be noted that the Mahasmiti meeting held four months ago had decided that all the office-bearers and central committee members should be elected from ward level to represent the Mahasamiti – the highest representative body of the Nepali Congress. The Mahasmiti also emphatically raised another issue that the party should not provide reservation facility to an individual more than one time. However, the central committee endorsed the statute of the party without taking into consideration the concerns of the Mahasamiti. The gathering also decided to make necessary coordination to raise relief assistance to the disaster-hit people of Bara and Parsa districts. Also discussed in the meeting are consolidation of internal party organization and nationwide campaign against the wrongdoings of the government, shared NC Nuwakot president Jagadish Narsingh KC. The gathering was attended by 41 district presidents of the NC.
