KATHMANDU, May 30: The opposition alliance has urged the state organs not to support the government in its anti-constitutional activities.
The alliance of Nepali Congress (NC), CPN (Maoist center), the Madhav Kumar Nepal led-faction of UML, the Upendra Yadav-led faction of Janata Samajbadi Party (JSP) and Rastriya Janamorcha Party held a joint meeting today. The meeting was held at NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba’s residence at Budhanilkantha in Kathmandu.
“We had staked claim to the post of Prime Minister with the support of 149 lawmakers. The government cannot take the decision of dissolving the HoR in this case,” reads a joint press statement of the opposition alliance.
The alliance has also urged all the state organs and institutions not to support the government in its ‘unconstitutional’ and ‘anti-democratic’ acts.
“We believe that the Supreme Court will pass the verdict in our favor,” further reads the statement.
The opposition parties have filed writ petitions at the apex court, demanding the reinstatement of HoR and appointment of Deuba to the post of Prime Minister.
