Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) advisor Kul Acharya has said complaints regarding irregularities in the selection of representatives for the upcoming NRNA election should not be interpreted as political interference.

Acharya, who is vying for the presidential post in the election to be held during the imminent 10th NRNA general convention, said, "Some of the members had reached the Ministry of Foreign Affairs seeking justice after International Coordination Council (ICC) paid no heed to the complaints. This was not done for fun, it was their compulsion."

Recalling that the NRNA is an organisation registered in the MoFA, Acharya said that works should be carried out in coordination with the ministry for achieving the NRNA's objectives and that the members had to move it to stop the misuse of the organisation.

"Nobody should misuse the organisation for fulfilling personal interest," he said and accused the ICC office-bearers of violating the organisation's statute by making a separate regulation after the stipulated time for same. Acharya also alleged the ICC officials of misinterpreting the statute prepared through consensus.

According to him, the dispute regarding the selection of the representatives to the general convention arose after the  National Coordination Council (NCC) was neglected and the representatives of certain countries chosen by holding legal convention were not recognised.
