TANAHUN: Nepali Congress (NC) Tanahun is to send a letter to the center to withdraw action against party’s former assistant general secretary Govinda Raj Joshi.
NC Tanahun’s acting president Jeet Prakash Ale shared that the district committee has decided to send a letter submitted to the committee by party cadres of Bhanu municipality-10 demanding withdrawal of action against Joshi to the central office for further decision.
The central disciplinary committee at the recommendation of the district committee had expelled Joshi from party’s general member for five years for his role to defeat NC’s official candidate and NC senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel in the last elections to the House of Representatives.
The election commission had dismissed the candidacy of Joshi in the elections after Poudel’s protest claim. There was an allegation that disgruntled Joshi had helped Nepal Communist Party’s candidate Krishna Kumar Shrestha in that election.
“The district committee has received an application demanding withdrawal of action against Joshi slapped by the center. It was the center’s decision so we are dispatching the application to the center”, Ale said.
