TAPLEJUNG, Nov 23: Stating that his resignation was sought as “some people were scared by the popularity of the current government”, Prime Minister K P Oli has said that the current government will not change in any circumstances. Prime Minister Oli also termed those making allegations that his government did nothing as “a bunch of jobless people seeking to bring instability in the country.”
Addressing a function organized in remote Ghunsa village in Taplejung district on Monday to inaugurate a newly-established health post, Prime Minister Oli argued that those who are scared of the efforts made by the current government to bring prosperity in the country had sought his resignation. He termed the government’s move to introduce a new political map to reclaim Nepali territory currently held by India as one of the popular works of his government.
Prime Minister Oli claimed that a section of leaders had demanded his resignation from both the posts of prime minister and party chairman out of fear that their existence would fall in jeopardy. “Some of you here are politicians as well. If allegations such as the government failed to do anything are made against the government led by your own party and questions – both verbal and written — are raised time and again to give the impression that the government will collapse at any time, these acts are done by those who are scared of the progress made by the government and those who have nothing else to do,” said the prime minister, while addressing the gathering of the local people.
Prime Minister Oli also said that the current government will not collapse under any circumstances as it is working for the greater cause of the country and its people. He also asked people not to cast any doubt that this government will not get continuity to work for the people and the country in a resolute manner.
Prime Minister Oli reached Taplejung at a time when the intraparty row within the ruling NCP has reached its peak. Oli was accompanied by former speaker Subas Nembang, Tourism Minister Yogesh Bhattarai and Chief Minister of Province 1, Sher Dhan Rai.
During his stay in Ghunsa, Prime Minister Oli also inaugurated a website started by Ghunsa Foundation. A delegation of the people in Ghunsa has submitted a memorandum to the prime minister to address various demands made by the villagers.
Prime Minister Oli also made an aerial inspection of the Border Outpost of Armed Police Force established recently in Olangchung Gola and bordering Tipatalapass area. Prime Minister Oli is scheduled to attend a function in Sandakpur village in Ilam, concluding all his scheduled programs in Taplejung district.
