At an interaction program presided over by a globally acclaimed veteran Nepali journalist Rishi Dhamala, Nepali Congress leader, Ms. Sujata Koirala August 12, 2012, advised party’s senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba not to present himself as the party’s prime ministerial candidate rather focus on strengthening the party and consolidate the democratic order.
She also suggested President Sushil Koirala to immediately nominate vice chairman Ram Chandra Poudel as party’s prime ministerial candidate.
The lion has been pinched. Sujata has invited a cyclone which would soon hit the entire NC paraphernalia, analysts hope.
“Sher Bahadur Ji should now act as a guardian. He should involve in activities to strengthen the party. It is the role of the guardian to strengthen the party. Ram Chandra ji is the appropriate candidate”, said Sujata.
“The forthcoming party central committee meeting will present Poudel as the party’s PM candidate,” Sujata told journalists.
Sujata also stood in favor of holding another round of CA election.
The fight thus is to begin soon. It would though be a free amusement. Gaijatra perhaps will never end in Nepal.
How Sher “Bahadur” will react will perhaps determine the course of the upcoming cyclone.
