Free press must for robust democracy: General Secretary Thapa

General Secretary of Nepali Congress, Gagan Kumar Thapa, said free press is essential to ensure robust and functional democracy. It is also imperative to institutionalize the federal democratic republic, he added.

Inaugurating the first AGM of Madhes Province chapter of Press Union at Kalaiya today, General Secretary Thapa viewed machinations were going on against the institutionalization of federal democratic republic. Two sides- one for constitution and another against it- were surfaced, so all democratic forces must be united.

“Ill-efforts were going on to trample free press and against federalism. Similarly, NC is being weakened to impose authoritarianism,” Thapa reminded, adding that country should elect the new President from the parties except CPN UML so that rule of law, development and prosperity would get in right track.
