Karnali CM Shahi announces candidacy for NC joint-general secretary
Karnali Province Chief Minister Jeevan Bahadur Shahi has announced his candidacy for the post of Nepali Congress joint-general secretary in the party’s upcoming 14th General Convention.
CM Shahi, who is also the NC central member, said that he would compete for the post in the quota allocated for backward regions.
As Shahi's personal secretary Raj Rokaya said, the CM would be filing his candidacy for the joint- general secretary post. Shahi, who represents Humla in the Karnali Province Assembly, also served as the Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation; and the Minister for Water Supplies in the federal government.
He said he was confident that the General Convention would trust him to be at the post of joint- general secretary recognizing his contribution in beginning the culture of the existing power alliance from Karnali though the party has just six seats in the Province Assembly.
