Banepa, 6 June : Central member of the Nepali Congress, Dr Shekhar Koirala, has pointed out the need of holding the fourth national convention of the party rather than conducting national awareness campaign.
At a programme organized by Panauti municipal committee of the party as part the of awareness campaign at Panauti of Kavre on Wednesday, central member Dr Koirala argued the fourth general convention could be delayed, so preparation was needed immediately for the timely convention.
If the convention is not held on time, the local level elections would be affected, he added.
Leader Dr Koirala wondered before the party cadres which- the campaign or convention- was more important at present.
There was no structure of the party in the rural municipality and municipality drawing confusion. “There are three presidents in a constituency, and which one is the legitimate one,” he asked.
On a different note, he blamed the government of concentrating 80 percent of the national budget in the centre, while allocating six percent to the State and 14 to local level.
It signals that government wants to concentrate authority in the centre, he asserted.
On the occasion, party’s central policy, research and training academy’s director Purushottam Dahal suggested the party that it could set up district training department for strengthening party base and organization.
