UML also decides to hit the streets against Bhattarai govt
KATHMANDU: The standing committee meeting of the CPN-UML has decided to intensify street protests against the government. The meeting held at the party headquarters, Balkhu on Monday concluded that the government which has already been a caretaker one was working arbitrarily. So, the UML would hit the street against this government, said Vice-Chairman Bam Dev Gautam.
The government announced new elections unconstitutionally, he said, adding that the street protests were essential because it was in an attempt to seize citizens’ power.
About the party, he said the leaders from the indigenous communities were told to put forth their views in the meeting.
Also, the meeting discussed about the national conclave of the party cadres being held in the capital city on June 18-19.
Before the meeting, senior leader of the party Madhav Kumar Nepal said the government was planning to retain power by bringing ordinances. It was the unconstitutional move of the Maoist-led government to press the President to bring ordinance, he added.
Ordinance could not be issued without forging consensus, leader Nepal claimed. RSS
