Koirala says Prez should not remain mute by sticking to constitution
KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala has claimed that the President cannot stick to the words of the constitution while the Maoist government is pushing nation into constitutional crisis.
Speaking at the inauguration of party’s district secretary conclave in Pokhara on Saturday, Koirala suggested that as guardian of the nation, the President should take initiatives for delivering the nation from present political and constitutional crisis.
Arguing that the government is a incapable one, as it had failed to hold CA elections announced by it, Koirala said that the President should come forward and in the capacity of the guardian of the constitution and the nation, should take appropriate measures.
He claimed that the Maoists had lost credibility in the national and international political sphere due to their lack of commitment to their promises. He argued that a national consensus government in the leadership of Nepali Congress can deliver the nation out of the political crisis.
