At a news conference organised by Banke Publicity Department of the Party here today, Chairman Oli said “The government should not show undemocratic character by trying to stop the polls from taking place even when any political party, Morcha and any group are against it. The government should stay firm on holding the elections.”

Saying the new constitution has not discriminated against anyone and that Tarai people have been duped into acting against it, he said in these circumstances, the UML has launched Mechi Mahakali campaign.
