DPM says present govt will hold CA elections as promised
CHITWAN: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs, Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar has said that the government led by Dr Baburam Bhattarai will hold elections of the Constituent Assembly (CA) in the declared time.
Talking to media persons at Chandragadhi Airport today, he said demanding resignation of the Prime Minister by opposition parties was unjustified.
To say that caretaker governments cannot hold elections is unjustified, Home Minister Gachchhadar reminded that elections were held by caretaker governments in Nepali history.
The Deputy Prime Minister, who had arrived in Bhadrapur to address a gathering of the district cadres of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (Loktantrik) held at Shivagunj in Jhapa district, mentioned that there was no alternative to consensus and added that problems have been created as opposition parties were involved against the norms of the Interim Constitution even if they had shown flexibility.
Mentioning the CA was dissolved without promulgating the new constitution as the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML did not understand public opinion on federalism, Gachchhadar clarified that the election was necessary for the new constitution. RSS
