Prez urges PM to avoid friction
While the Executive head has upped in arms over the President’s move to call for the national consensus government by denouncing the move officially through the decision of the cabinet, the latter has urged the former to avoid any disputes that may rise between the two institutions. President Dr Rambaran Yadav has also said to Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai that his intention was not wrong and he wished to forge national consensus by making a call for the formation of national consensus government.
Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai called on President Dr Ram Baran Yadav on Sunday evening and apprised him of the decisions taken by the Council of Ministers.
Earlier today, the cabinet meeting had concluded that the call made by the President for formation of national consensus government was unconstitutional and decided to share the decision with the President.
“I apprised the President of the cabinet decision, and in reply the President said that his intention was not wrong and that he wished forging of a national consensus”, Dr Bhattarai told reporters following the meeting that last for more than an hour at the Rastrapati Bhawan Sheetal Niwas.
Dr Bhattarai also said that the President has assured him of not crossing the constitutional limits and to work together with him ahead. “The discussion was indeed positive”, the Prime Minister said.
