Koirala advises Prez to cancel India trip
While President Dr Ram Baran Yadav is all set to visit India on Monday, Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala has advised the President not to make any foreign trip until the current deadlock of the country is ended.
Addressing a three-day national gathering of the party’s regional president in Thali on Saturday, Koirala said: “The problems should be addressed before President embarks into the trip of India. But it will not give a positive message to the international front if the President makes any foreign trip without the crisis at his own backyard is resolved.”
The cabinet meeting on Friday has also endorsed the President Dr Yadav’s six-day long trip to India attend the anniversary program of Banaras Hindu University.
Likewise, Koirala was of the view that the sooner the deadlock is resolved the more better it would be for the ruling Maoist and Madhes based parties. Warning the Maoist, hesaid that those would perish themselves who go against the democracy.
Also speaking in the occasion, senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuwa said that holding new Constituent Assembly election would have no meaning if the parties opt for inking deal on the disputed issues of the new constitution. “We have already made our commitment for democratic federal republic and the contentious issues pertaining to the constitution will be resolved in the Constituent Assemby,” Deuwa said.
Similarly,Congress Vice-president Ram Chandra Poudel directed the regional chairs of the party to make preparation for the election to ensure Congress victory adding that the Constituent Assembly failed due to the loss of Congress during the Constituent Assemble election earlier.
