Gorkha, Feb 10 (RSS): Nepali Congress central member Gagan Kumar Thapa has said it was not beneficial for the party to defer its general convention.
At a press meet organized by Nepal Press Union Gorkha chapter here today, leader Thapa urged the party leadership to immediately prepare for the general convention because its deferral would weaken the party.
"As NC is not in the government, it must work for general convention. Let's not wait for two years for it," he underscored. According to him, the coming general convention could be a turning point for the older generation of leaders to take rest from the active politics. "I'm also ready to fight for the party's President to shoulder the party leadership", he added.
The leader further argued that older generation leaders should hold the responsibilities of guardians rather than holding executive power in the party.
He was of the stand that youths need to emerge in the party's mainstream so that early generation would be given due respect, he stressed.
According to him, time has come for the party leaders to make NC dynamic with growing activism.
