CHITWAN, March 4: Nepali Congress (NC) senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel has said the NC could support the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Dahal-Nepal faction to form a government.
Speaking at a news conference organised by Nepal Press Union Chitwan here today, Podel said the NC should take the country out of the political crisis by supporting other parties.
"NC can help other parties form and run the government while remaining in its poise. The NC's role would be even more pertinent in this. We can be positive on this topic and discussions will be held in this connection," the party’s senior leader said.
Stating it was not easy for NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba to run the government in the present situation, he said he was not trying to stop Deuba from becoming the Prime Minister but what he wanted to stress was to come to a conclusion after consultations as to what would be good for democracy and the system.
"The present situation is precarious. Who takes the responsibility of giving a way out to the country? I do not see any other party except the Congress to play a role in this," he said.
He shared that he would demand convening the party's central committee meeting in the meeting of the office-bearers scheduled for today, adding the party should move ahead by making a policy decision. He said, " We will discuss topics like why NC should join a coalition government, how it should be a part of such a government and in what status," senior leader Poudel elaborated.
Replying to a question, he said the Nepali Congress should address the present 'political mess' and the new government should be formed not for the convenience of India, China or America but for consolidating and upholding Nepal's system. RSS
