BIRATNAGAR, Jan 29: Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Dahal-Nepal faction Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that the country has been witnessing a big political crisis of late.
Addressing a mass gathering organized in Biratnagar on Friday to protest against the government’s move of parliament dissolution, Chairman Dahal argued that Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has attacked democracy by dissolving the House of Representatives (HoR).
He further claimed PM Oli took the party toward disintegration relegating previous agreement into the backburner.
Dahal also blamed the government for protecting the wrongdoers and those involved in corruption.
The former prime minister argued that the Speaker can summon the House session when necessary. “The Supreme Court will give a verdict on the writ petitions filed against parliament dissolution, upholding the constitutional spirit", Prachanda said.
The other chairman of the NCP (Dahal-Nepal faction), Madhav Kumar Nepal said that the voices against regression were being raised across the country and blamed Prime Minister Oli of strangulating the constitution of the country.
Reminding that communist parties could in no way tolerate dictators, Nepal claimed PM Oli would be left in the lurch because of his own activities.
Nepal, also a former prime minister, held PM Oli responsible for shrinking communist movements, federalism and democracy.
He claimed that PM Oli has dictatorial characteristics of taking arbitrary decisions and ignoring the party's code of conduct.
Leader Nepal was confident that the Supreme Court would deliver the verdict honoring the spirit of the constitution and public sentiments regarding the dissolution of the House of Representatives.
Furthermore, he expressed his confidence that the Election Commission of Nepal would take decisions regarding the ownership of the party in accordance with the rules and regulations. He claimed that the NCP would be theirs.
