Janamorcha rolls out fresh protest programs against government
KATHMANDU: The Rastriya Janamorcha, Nepal, has announced fresh protest programmes demanding formation of a national unity government, elections to the Constituent Assembly (CA), scrap of federalism and ethnic and regional goodwill.
The party is scheduled to organize mass meetings across the country from the beginning of July, said party chairman Chitra Bahadur KC organizing a press conference today in the capital.
KC said intra-party rifts, Maoist party’s backtrack from the five-point agreement and major political parties’ power hungry nature were to blame for the CA dissolution.
Saying the government was caretaker constitutionally and politically as well, KC reasoned that this government has no rights to hold CA elections.
Issuing a press statement, the party has said that political consensus was a must for holding elections and legal hurdles should be ended by the President based on political consensus among the political parties.
The party has reiterated that federalism was inappropriate for the country as the country was as risk of ethnic and regional clashes. RSS
