Leaders call to scrap decisions of Bhattarai govt. for fair elections
KATHMANDU: The decision of the political parties to form the election government led by Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi has increased hope among the people that the country could get solution to the current political stalemate but the leaders have started pointing fingers to each other.
Speaking at an interaction in the Capital, leaders of the Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML have said the decisions taken by the previous Dr. Baburam Bhattarai-led government should be withdrawn so as to conduct the elections in a free and fair manner.
They accused the erstwhile government of taking decisions and transferring government officials with the motive of influencing the future elections.
Speaking in the interaction, Nepali Congress leader Ram Saran Mahat argued that elections won’t be fair until the appointments and transfers of officials by the Bhattarai government are scrapped as the decisions were taken by breaching the rules and procedures. “Those who got appointments during Bhattarai government should be sacked if they do not resign voluntarily on moral grounds,” he added.
Similarly speaking at the same program, CPN-UML secretary Shankar Pokharel also claimed that the Bhattarai government transferred government officials to influence the elections and that his party is not convinced of free and fair elections until those appointments and transfers are withdrawn.
