A meeting held at the Congress headquarters decided to request people for participation‚ send letters‚ hold meetings to inform them about programmes and make appeals for participation

KATHMANDU: Nine agitating opposition parties today said they will start a door-to-door campaign from tomorrow asking people to take part in the anti-government rally and a gathering scheduled for February 8 in Kathmandu.

A meeting of the taskforce of the opposition parties held at the Nepali Congress headquarters in Sanepa decided to request people for participation, send letters, organise meetings at the local level and make public appeals so that a large number of people turn up for the opposition’s programmes, said NC Central Committee member Nabindra Raj Joshi.

The meeting decided on one-and-a-half-dozen slogans that include – Down with totalitarianism, Guarantee the Constituent Assembly, Maintain rule of law, Down with corrupt and anti-people government, and End the power cut and inflation – according to Joshi.

“The nine parties will bear the cost of the rally and mass meeting. We will sit again on Monday to estimate the total budget,” he said. Appealing the public to hit the streets against the government, the opposition parties said the country will get rid of the constitutional and political crises, corruption, inflation and impunity only if the incumbent government steps down. They are hopeful that around one lakh people will join their movement on February 8, sources said.

NC General Secretary Prakash Man Singh and Joshi, UML leaders Shankar Pokharel, Raghujee Panta and Krishna Gopal Shrestha were among those present at the meeting.

Leaders of the NC will go door-to-door tomorrow to recruit people for a rally against the government that they themselves will pay for. oes any of that sound backwards? Usually it is the people who rise up. The leaders only do it for ego and corruption. NC leaders are a bunch of jerkwads and smart people will ignore them with caustic impunity Suraj Rajbhandhari, Putali Sadak, Kathmandu
