Koirala vows to bring Nepali Congress back to its pre-election formOctober 7th, 2008 - 2:56 pm ICT by ANI
Kathmandu, Oct 7 (ANI): Nepali Congress president Girija Prasad Koirala has claimed that he will bring the party back to its pre-election form within just three months.
Speaking to party workers here on Monday, Koirala said he was confident that the party would regain its lost strength within that time.
He said that he was not yet ready to transfer leadership to what is known within the Congress party as second generation, saying he would not retire unless the party regained its old form.
Koirala also asked the cadres to resolve internal differences and focus on rebuilding the party organisation.
Meanwhile, Nepali Congress central leader Shekhar Koirala has said his party is not interested in toppling the Maoist-led government.
“Even as the Maoists are accusing us of trying to topple the government, Nepali Congress will not make such a move because there is very little time left for drafting a new Constitution. Our focus will be on timely drafting of the constitution,” Nepalnews quoted him as saying. (ANI)
