Mugu, Oct. 28: The candidates standing in the November 19 CA election from Mugu district have prioritized on development issues and made ambitions commitments in course of their election campaign.

Infrastructure development such as transport, agriculture, tourism and electricity among others, have received priority in the appeals and concept papers distributed by the candidates in course of electioneering.

Candidates of the Nepali Congress, the CPN-UML, and the UCPN-Maoist, which are the major contenders in the forthcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) election in Mugu district, have expressed commitments on over a dozen development agendas.

In this connection, they have made commitments to expand the road network and electrification in the district, making the district self-reliant in agriculture, creation of job opportunities, tourism promotion, poverty alleviation, quality education, effective health care facilities, protection of non-timber forest products and herbs processing.

In his election 18-point election concept paper, Nepali Congress candidate Ain Bahadur Shahi has outlined development of infrastructures in different areas. He has stated that the state restructuring would be carried out considering the geographical proximity, administrative convenience and the availability of resources based on the historical, territorial, cultural and social interaction in the Karnali Zone. He has also emphasized on the protection of the historical and cultural heritage of the zone.

UML candidate Mohan Baniya, in his commitment paper, spelled out plans for the expansion of the road network and development of education, health, employment, medicinal herbs and tourism infrastructure in the district. He has stated that emphasis would be laid on making the Karnali Zone a multi-identity based federal state enjoying prerogative rights and state compensation.

However, UCPN-Maoist candidate Sukabir Budha has not made public any commitment paper or appeal to voters from his side. He has been using the party’s central election concept paper for electioneering purposes.

The candidates of other parties have not yet distributed any specific appeal notes or concept papers or plans to voters yet.

Khagendra Bahadur Malla, District President of the Nepali Congress Mugu, said that although the election is being held for the Constituent Assembly to write a new constitution, his party’s candidate has made commitment on development as the constitution making and development go hand in hand. He added that the NC candidate’s appeal was in line with the party’s election manifesto.

The CA election is for writing a new constitution and the commitments for development mentioned in the appeal distributed by the UML candidate are not promises to be fulfilled immediately but part of the party’s 20-year development concept, said UML Mugu District Secretary Jeet Bahadur Malla.
