Prakash Paudel Emerges as a Dominant Force

The election of ANNFSU Gandaki has been subject to controversy, as the CPN-UML expressed suspicions regarding the process. There were reported attempts to undermine the influence of Central Spokesman Prakash Poudel, a student leader from Myagdi, in the power struggle. Representatives participating in the election claimed that Kaski, at the centre of Gandaki province, followed a tradition of restricting leaders from outside districts.

Despite the challenges, Prakash Poudel, known for his popularity among students, emerged as a strong leader willing to challenge internal factions within the party. His leadership, particularly in Dhaulagiri, where he expanded the group among students, has been commendable. Prakash Poudel, with a history of successfully holding various positions, has significantly contributed to the movement against urban discrimination, expanding programs nationwide.

Pratap Dhakal, president of the Gorkha ANNFSU, sees the first convention of Gandaki province as a stepping stone for Prakash Poudel's future role as the general secretary in the upcoming congress. Poudel, a staunch supporter of party president KP Oli, emphasised Oli's qualities in a recent interview, stating that Oli is not only a political figure but also a scientist.

The first tenure of Prakash Poudel as the founding coordinator of Gandaki Province Aneraswawiyu is lauded as one of the best. His effective role in expanding the organization through campaigns and movements, notably the success of the Manipal Medical College movement, has elevated his standing, making him a favorite among students, as highlighted by ANNFSU Myagdi President Milan Khatri.
