Deuba gives PM three-tricks to resolve impasse
KATHMANDU: Senior leader of the Nepali Congress, Sher Bahadur Deuba, has floated three options with Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai to seek a way out to the present political crisis.
Leader Deuba suggested Prime Minister Dr Bhattarai to think the three options as of bringing constitution through constitutional commission, reinstating the Constituent Assembly, and holding elections with necessary preparation.
During the meeting held at leader Deuba’s residence on Wednesday, Prime Minister Dr Bhattarai urged leader Deuba to assist government to hold election because the elections date was already fixed.
Following the meeting, leader Deuba told media that he made the Prime Minister aware about forging consensus considering the national circumstances and proposed three options to tackle the crisis.
He further said he had already suggested the Prime Minister to impose emergency and extend CA term, but he denied.
Leader Deuba was of the view that national consensus had no alternative. He also said the Prime Minister must step down to bring the derailed politics into track.
In a bid to garner support from different parties and forge consensus following the CA dissolution, the Prime Minister has continued meeting leaders of different parties.
In this connection, he met leader Deuba today.
The Prime Minister has already met NC President Sushil Koirala and CPN-UML Chairman Jhalanath Khanal.
He assured leader Deuba of garnering support for consensus in the meeting, it is said. RSS
