The Nepali Congress has unveiled its local level election manifesto giving the name, 'NC's Resolution'. It was made public amidst a programme in the party central office on Sunday.
The NC has showed yearning to lead in all local levels to forward the campaign of prosperous Nepal. Sharing information about the election manifesto, election manifesto preparation committee coordinator and General Secretary Gagan Kumar Thapa argued democracy is strengthened when the local levels are made robust.
The NC had established a separate ministry to look after local autonomous government after the 2007BS revolution, he reminded, adding, "Following the first general election, 2016BS, the BP Koirala-led government had set up a ministry of local autonomous government, which, he argued, paved a foundation for autonomy of local government.
According to him, NC is clear that inclusive and participatory system fostered by robust local governments can pave a way for national prosperity. Local government can also foster unity in diversity, he added. For strengthening democracy and federal system, the federal government and provinces need to act in coordination and cooperation with local levels, the manifesto emphasized.
The NC had got victory in 271 local levels in 2074 elections.
In the manifesto, the NC has blamed the federal government led by Communist Party of Nepal that it denied capacity building of local levels and failed to foster coordination and cooperation.
NC General Secretary Thapa further said Nepali leaders should admit that no noticeable progress was made in terms of institutionalizing federalism by solving the problems facing the local levels.
Despite adversity, local levels have made and enforced various laws by exercising the rights provided by the constitution.
