Kathmandu: President of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RSP) Rabi Lamichhane has said that his party stands for fair and healthy election competition. Addressing the election publicity program at Ambukhaireni Rural Municipality-3, Tanahu, on Saturday, President Lamichhane reiterated that he was always eager to be involved in fair politics. “We want fair politics and fair election campaigns. We don’t have any negative views of other candidates,” he said, adding that competition is a positive aspect of democracy.
He further said people are the masters in democratic system. President Lamichhane urged Tanahu people to think judiciously before voting. “You can change the voting pattern this time,” he requested and vowed that his party would work to intensify development in the country. On the occasion, Lamichhane reminded that his party candidate Dr Swarnim Wagle contesting from Tanahu-1 aims at contributing to clean politics and elevating the national economy. He further argued that pollution in politics has pushed the country backward. Wagle said he wanted to be a politician and did not like to castigate others. “I don’t have time to rebuke others, so I respond to them with work,” he said, adding that the development model would begin from Tanahu and it could be replicated to other parts of the country later. “People don’t want such leaders that call development only to drinking water supply and roads. But, time has come for the leaders that advocate and lead the entire economic development of the country,” he said.
Sishir Khanal, House of Representatives member and former Education Minister said people of Tanahu-1 have got such a leader whom they could pride on.
