Government obstruction to consensus: leaders
KATHMANDU: Leaders of various political parties have said the ruling coalition of the UCPN-Maoist and the Madhesi Front was an obstacle to national consensus, inevitable to free the country from the current political and constitutional deadlock.
At an interaction on ‘Present Crisis and its Solution’ organized by Media Vision Nepal in the capital on Wednesday, they accused the government of becoming authoritative with foreign backup. The government needs to pave the way for formation of a national consensus government, the speakers said.
The leaders also warned of vigorous protest from the streets to topple the government if it failed to heed to their demands.
Leader of Nepali Congress Ramesh Lekhak said the government must step down on moral grounds because the election it announced for November 22 could not be held.
Similarly, CPN-UML leader Bharat Mohan Adhikari said nationality was being jeopardized by the acts of the present government. Therefore, all political parties need to be united to forge a consensus, he added.
Vice-Chairman of CPN-Maoist CP Gajurel said a roundtable conference was a must for consensus because the government was not pliant to pave way for a national consensus government. RSS
