Nepal PM warns of ‘terrible price’ if Madhesis boycott polls

Nepal Prime Minister Prachanda today said the Madhes-centric parties will pay a “terrible price” if they rejected the government’s appeal to participate in the local-level elections on May 14.

The government has maintained utmost flexibility to address the concerns of the Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha, an alliance of seven Madhes-centric parties, to bring it on board the election process, Prachanda, also the chairman of the Maoist party, said while addressing an election rally organised by CPN (Maoist Centre) in Birtamod in Jhapa.

The alliance will pay a terrible price if it turns down the government’s request to participate in the local-level elections, the Prime Minister was quoted as saying by The Kathmandu Post.

The Prime Minister said that he would try to convince the agitating Madhesis to participate in the polls.

In case the Morcha leaders refused to participate in the local elections, the decision will only hurt them and their reputation, Prachanda said.

The people will reject Morcha if it decided to boycott the elections, he said, adding that the elections will be conducted in a single phase on May 14.
