Morang district branch of Nepali Congress (NC) on September 13 sent Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala’s name to contest Constituent Assembly elections based on first-past-the-post electoral system from Constituency No1 of Morang. As the district committees of the party are gearing up for such nominations, Puskar Magar, a Nepali Congress cadre writes an open letter to the leadership.
Dear Nepali Congress Leaders and Cadres
Jay Nepal all,
Subject: No corrupt leaders for CA election!
Nepal is going through a crucial political juncture. Forthcoming CA election will define the future of Nepal. Any ill decision by our Nepali Congress (NC) party could significantly alter the results of the future election. As a NC worker, what scares me the most is that NC has not been able to isolate or remove corrupt/tainted NC leaders from the party. Apparently, those who are known for the corruption and misdeeds are working hard to get a ticket for the forthcoming CA election; and NC leadership is ignoring public displeasure with these tainted leaders.
We have five corrupt leaders, whose corruption cases are pending in the Supreme Court: Govinda Raj Joshi, Khum Bahadur Khadka, Chiranjeeve Wagle, Vijaya Gachhedar, and JP Gupta. If NC continues to support/protect these corrupt leaders, NC will pay a big price in forthcoming CA general election.
1) The names mentioned above are the disgrace for our party and the country.
2) These corrupt leaders are one of the key reasons for failed democracy and the eventual takeover by king Gyanedra.
I believe NC should not give the ticket to these corrupt leaders. People will not accept these corrupt people as their leaders. If these corrupt people get the ticket, it will help other parties in the election.
These dishonest leaders have ill-earned money and the support of criminal gangs. They will try to get the ticket at any cost. The time has arrived for us to show that we are against corruption and corrupts.
People want a change in the country. People want a corruption free Nepal. People want a real leader. And people want real democracy in the country and a true democratic culture within NC.
Let’s unequivocally convey our message to NC decision makers that we do not want corrupt leaders to run with a NC ticket. We have an obligation to raise our voice against what we believe in. Please communicate with the NC decision makers in whatever means you can: telephone, letter, e-mail or through a face to face meeting. Your endeavors will help to build our nation and will send a positive message.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Jay Nepal!

On a personal note: One of my senior family members is a “Martyr” and he died in Bandipaur, Tanahun in 2007 B.S. fighting against Rana regime. I am a born NC supporter. My family & I care and love NC. And we believe, NC is the only hope for the country.
