NEW PARTY BEING LAUNCHED

Kathmandu, 29 May: Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (Nefin) President Raj Kumar Lekhi is all set to announce a new political party called Nepali Citizens Party (NCP) on Sunday, Gni Ansari reports in Republica.

´´Until and unless we become our own leaders, we can´t secure our rights. Drawing this conclusion, we decided to form a national party´´, Lekhi told Republica.

Underscoring the need for forming a new party, Lekhi said they were compelled to announce a new party as the political parties in the Constituent Assembly have proved inefficient to resolve problems facing the country.

The party will have a seven-member central committee with representatives from indigenous groups, Muslim comunity, Dalits, women and other backward classes of society.

He said the central committee will include besides himself Bijay Danuwar, Nagendra Rajbanshi, Chandra Kumar Chaudhari, Tajmohammed Miya, Chandrakala Gurung, and Raj Kumar Regmi.

Lekhi said the new party will form its organization in about 35 district in the first phase.

He said his party will be different from existing political parties from leadership and other points of view.

´´It will be neither like Nepali Congress, which is led by Bahun leaders, and nor like Madhesh-based parties and regional ones´´.

Lekhi said his party will launch a nationawide campaign against corruption and that his party will never call any strike and shutdown.

Recently, Lekhi was criticized by the international community for calling strikes. UK even announced stalling aid to Lekhi-led Nefin.

Danuwar is an ex-secretary of Nefin while Miya is the chairman of Nepal Muslim Federation. Similarly, Rajbanshi is Nefin vice chairman and Chaudhari is the chairman of the Tharu Welfare Council. Likewise Gurung is ex-chairman of the National Indigenous Women´s Federation and Regmi is the chairman of Society of Parliamentary Affairs Journalists.

Nefin, an umbrella organization of indigenous nationalities, had elected Lekhi as president last year.
