L-R: KP Sharma Oli and Bishwa Prakash Sharma

Jhapa, October 25

The Nepali Congress party is likely to field its popular youth leader Bishwa Prakash Sharma against CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli in the upcoming House of Representatives elections in Jhapa-5.

As the party began discussions on possible candidates for the second phase of elections scheduled for December 7 today, various leaders have suggested that Sharma challenge Oli.

Sharma is a permanent resident of Jhapa-1 and he was preparing to contest polls from the home constituency. But, the party is planning to field him in Jhapa-5  as other district level leaders of the party are not ready to contest against Oli. Oli’s hometown Damak lies in this constituency.

Meanwhile, Sharma has expressed readiness to contest the polls from any constituency the party decides.
