PM’s views Tyrannical: Leader Oli
KATHMANDU/n24: The CPN-UML leader KP Sharma Oli said Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai’s views to not step down from power till next election was tyrannical. It was the ‘Junga Bahadur spirit’ in the Prime Minister to express such views, he commented.
Leader Oli, upon his arrival home from Azerbaijan, told media persons at the Tribhuvan International Airport on Tuesday that present time was not the age of any autocrat or Junga Bahadur. However, he said it was not necessary to demand resignation of the Prime Minister who is already a caretaker one.
He made a satirical comment: “Have you ever heard the resignation of caretaker prime minister in the world?” Moreover, leader Oli said it was the ignorance of the Prime Minister to stick to power as he was already relieved from the post by the President. On the other hand, he termed the demand of the PM’s resignation by other parties after PM Bhattarai returned from Brazil ‘childish demand.’
He claimed that election could not be held on the date this government announced. Similarly, leader Oli ruled out the possibility of consensus government under the leadership of Dr Bhattarai. Leader Oli returned home after participating in the 17th standing meeting of the Asian political parties’ organization.
