CPN-UML leader Bhim Rawal has criticized the party’s move of denying him a ticket for the November 20 elections as arbitrary and unjust.
He made such remarks during a press conference organized in Kathmandu on Thursday.
“I have raised questions about the violation of policies and regulations within UML, not about the issue of me being denied a ticket. It is arbitrary and unjust to give tickets to people who have not made a contribution to UML,” said Rawal.
He accused the party of denying him a ticket after realizing that it could not get him defeated.
“Which principle do giving proportional ticket to a holy wine promoter, giving the Makawanpur ticket to the one who had barbarically suppressed UML cadres, and collaborating with those who celebrate the Constitution Day as a black day fall under?” Rawal questioned.
Rawal was unanimously recommended as the UML candidate in Achham-1. However, UML has made Jhapat Bohara the party’s candidate in the constituency. Bohara recently joined UML after leaving CPN (Maoist Center).
