KATHMANDU, July 14: Leaders of different political parties have expressed mixed views regarding the no-confidence motion registered at the Legislature-Parliament against the Prime Minister.

At a program organized by the Reporters' Club here today, Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Ananda Prasad Pokharel, stood against the no-confidence motion while NC leader Ramesh Lekhak, CPN (Maoist Centre) leader Haribol Gajurel and Laxmanlal Karna of the United Democratic Madhesi Front argued that the no-confidence motion would topple the government.

On the occasion, Minister Pokharel said that the incumbent government was still in majority and CPN (UML)-led government would get continuity.

Stating that game has been played to topple the government under the pressure of foreign forces, he said, "The plot to depose this government was made secretively and many friends are following it."

However, NC leader Lekhak said that the decision of changing the government was taken secretively but in a bright room of the Legislature-Parliament building.

Lekhak said that the alternative of the incumbent was searched after the national agenda of the CPN (UML)-led government failed. He said, "A new government would fully implement the new constitution by incorporating maximum issues raised by people of different sectors."

Similarly, CPN (Maoist Centre) leader Gajurel, who is also the outgoing Minister, said that the Prime Minister should pave ways for new government by tendering his resignation in view of the registration of the no-confidence motion against him.

He clarified that his party had to search an alternative as the leadership of the incumbent government became failure from every angle.

Likewise, UDMF leader Karna said although they agreed to change the incumbent government, they would not join the new government until their demands were addressed. RSS
