Kathmandu, Oct. 2: Nepali Congress (NC) leader Suprabha Ghimire has announced to quit the party for belittling her contribution, self-esteem and existence.

‘I did not see the situation to remain in the party when its genuine objective of building just, dynamic, independent and equitable society was confined to slogan due to vested interests of some people’, she said in a press conference organized in the Capital on Wednesday.

She accused the party of being indifferent towards implementing the constitutional provision of ensuring minimum 33 per cent representation of women.

The party has limited the women’s right in the name of youth, Ghimire said adding that she would think whether to register independent candidacy or to establish another party but would work for women rights wherever she will be.

Leader Ghimire won the earlier CA election from Kathmandu constituency-4.

Likewise, disgruntled leaders of NC, Kapilvastu have collectively padlocked the party office putting ‘chair’ and ‘nameplate’ of district President.

They resorted to vandalism and arson expressing dissatisfaction for not providing them with ticket despite recommendations from region and district.

NC district leaders Attahar Kamal, Raju Aryal, Dirgha Narayan Pandey and Mangal Prasad Gupta came up with string protest challenging the decision of party parliamentary committee.

A protest rally was also taken out from Lawani to Taulihawa citing party did not adopt inclusive approach while selecting candidates.

It is learnt that NC leaders Deep Kumar Upadhya, Rajesh Acharya, Sudhakar Pandey, Surendra Raj Acharya and Birendra kumar Kanaudiya have received ticket to contest first-past-the-post election from Kapilvastu, constituency 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively. RSS
