Government not stepping down unless inter-party consensus forged: Agni

KATHMANDU: Spokesperson of UCPN (Maoist) Agni Sapkota has said that the present government would not resign without forging a consensus in the disputed issues in the constitution making process.

In an interaction with media persons covering the UCPN (Maoist) party beat at the party’s headquarters in Paris Danda on Tuesday, he also argued that the government would not resign without an alternative as the country cannot be pushed towards anarchy.

“The parties first need to agree on reinstatement of the constituent assembly or the fresh elections, only then we can think of a change in the government,” he said.

Spokesperson Sapkota said that the five-point agreement reached among the parties to give NC the leadership of the next government had lost its significance, and so any party could be leading the new government on the basis of consensus.

He said despite maximum efforts made by his party to forge a consensus the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML were not ready for it.

Sapkota also went on to accuse the Nepali Congress of conspiring to stop the constituent assembly, an achievement of the people’s war and the people’s movement, from being successful again.

The UCPN (Maoist) is determined of promulgating the new constitution from the constituent assembly, and any other option would not be acceptable to the party, he added.

Referring to the recent controversies surrounding the visit to Nepal by Indian leaders and scholars, the Maoist party spokesperson said the visit by Bharatiya Janta Party Yashwant Shina was suspicious and added that they was no point preaching Nepal and the Nepali people in the pretext of publicizing one’s book.
