Leaders on consensus to resolve political turmoil
KATHMANDU: Leaders of the main political parties have stressed the need of national consensus to resolve present political crisis in the country.
At a programme organized by the Media Vision in the capital on Monday, the leaders of the UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress, and the CPN-UML said the elections to the constituent assembly could be held only after forging consensus among all political parties.
Politburo member of the UCPN-Maoist Agni Prasad Sapkota said it was not time to engage in blame game but to seek political consensus to cope with crisis.
He, however, claimed that it was because of the disagreement of the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML on identity-based federalism, the CA was dissolved.
Central member of the Nepali Congress Arjun Narsing KC said it was time to unite each other to protect national integrity and ethnic harmony.
Only all-party agreement could help navigate the present transition emerged after the dissolution of the CA, he said, accusing the government of making decision of holding CA election unilaterally.
Also speaking on the occasion, UML standing committee member Bharat Mohan Adhikari said national consensus must be built within the major three parties and the Madhesi Front.
Present situation was resulted after the unilateral decision of the government to hold CA election on November 22, he reiterated. RSS
