Kathmandu 17 Aug.: UCPN-Maoist leader Dr Baburam Bhattarai said that country's major target was to conduct the Constituent Assembly (CA) election successfully slated for November 19, RSS reports..

Addressing a programme organised by the party's Kathmandu Election Constituency No. 1 for collecting suggestions to prepare the election manifesto on Saturday, Dr Bhattarai said those opposing the CA polls were not understanding the people's sentiments and aspirations.

The UCPN-Maoist)leader said that the November 19 CA election would not be postponed at any cost.

He also added that poll deferral would invite serious crisis in the country. "Upcoming election will hold on November 19 and the country will also get an outlet. All political parties are committed to this end," he argued.

The former prime minister also said that talks with the agitating parties led by the CPN-Maoist would be held honestly to bring them on board.
