Kathmandu, Aug 8: Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has said the party won't exert any interference on the ongoing general convention of Nepal Students' Union (NSU), a sister wing of the party.
Addressing the inaugural of the 11th general convention of the NSU in the capital city on Sunday, President Deuba said the disputes in the NSU should be settled by the Union leaders themselves, as they were the future leaders. "Democracy faces risks if the Nepali Congress is enfeebled," he stressed.
On the occasion, senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel suggested student leaders to make the
clear and dignified.
NC leader and Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Bimalendra Nidhi said the sister organizations of the party should focus national interests, and institutionalization of the achievements made with the constitution.
At the event, NC former General Secretaries Prakashman Singh and Krishna Prasad Sitaula and others said all should join hands to make the convention a success while acknowledging important role of the NPU for building party leadership.
Likewise, NC leaders and former Presidents of the NPU including Bipin Koirala, Gururaj Ghimire and Ranjit Karna were of the view that the NPU should be free of party's interference.
Although the three-day convention is said to be attended by around 3,400 representatives, the number of the representatives is yet to be ascertained due to various reasons.
