November 28,Damauli : Vice-President of the Nepali Congress, Ram Chandra Poudel, has said that incumbent party president Sushil Koirala and senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba should support him in upcoming 13th general convention of the party scheduled for March 3, 2016.
At a programme organised by the Reporters’ Club Nepal at Tanahun today, Poudel said that the two leaders should support him as he has sacrificed a lot in the party since long and there was support of party cadres as well. “Sushil has already become party president and prime minister. Sher Bahadur became prime minister for three times. So it is now my turn to be party president.”
Responding to a query, the NC Vice-President said that he was new for the party president and he should get chance to work as a president, so the leadership would go automatically in the new generation after this.
Arguing that the existing problems in the country would be resolved soon as dialogue with some Indian leaders and Madhesi Morcha was underway in this regard, Poudel blamed the incumbent government of increasing problems rather than resolving them.
