Kathmandu, 12 OCtober : Chairman of Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' said that NCP leader Bamdev Gautam has already decided to backtrack on his decision to contest a by-election from Kathmandu-7.

Dahal said so amidst reports that the party’s influential leader Bamdev Gautam decided to withdraw his plan of contesting the election in his bid to get a seat in the Federal Parliament. Earlier, it was reported that Dahal and Gautam convinced Kathmandu-7’s lawmaker Ram Bir Manandhar to resign to vacate the position so that the Election Commission conducts the bypoll there.

Instead of thinking about byelections, the party should concentrate on improving the government’s performance so as to take the country towards development and prosperity, according to him.He was of the view that the government led by another Chairman of the party, KP Sharma Oli, established foundations of development in past six months.
