“The idea of vote buying and vote selling should be a thing of the past. The slogan “dibo ko se be” is harmful to our democracy. Instead, free, fair and credible election should be preached and maintained.”

The man of God urged all the political parties that will be participating in the June poll to preach peace before, during, and after the election.

“There is no alternative to peace, therefore, peaceful atmosphere should be maintained during the political campaigns and well guided utterances should be ensured.

“As a matter of fact, campaigns should be issue-based. In other words, a well-structured and pragmatic manifesto should form the basis of every candidate and their campaign.”
