Minister Ale warns Oli that he is not confident of winning the elections – myRepublica
KATHMANDU, March 19: Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister Prem Bahadur Ale has warned CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli not to be sure of winning 60% of the seats in the upcoming local elections.
Speaking at a program held in Kathmandu on Saturday, Minister Ale, who is also a CPN (Unified Socialist) leader, said Oli wasted his opportunity even as the Communist Party of Nepal (NCP) under his leadership had won nearly two-thirds majority seats in parliament. Arguing that it was Oli’s hubris that led to the split in the NCP, Ale suggested that he should not be confident of securing such a win.
In a separate context, Minister Ale accused the government then led by Oli of handing over the Narayanhiti Museum and the Pashupatinath Dharamsala to private individuals at a very cheap price. He said Oli should not be proud of the kind of political achievements he made during his tenure as prime minister.
On the occasion, Minister Ale said that he would do his best to organize the necessary budget for Dolakha in the next three years and hold discussions with the Prime Minister, the Minister of Information and the Minister of Finance in this end. Ale said all relevant bodies should lobby the government to organize the necessary budget for the district.
