NEPALGUNJ (BANKE), June 6: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli today said that a national consensus government is a must for the welfare of the country.
Talking to media persons at Nepalgunj Airport, he claimed that preparations were afoot to form a national consensus government instead of dissolving the incumbent government.
PM Oli was on his way to Surkhet to join the meeting of the Senate of the Mid Western University, Birendranagar.
"Discussions are underway with all opposition political parties for consensus. The incumbent government should be allowed to function until the next parliamentary elections," he said.
He also said that national consensus was a must for proper implementation of the constitution. "It will be easier to implement the constitution once national consensus government is formed. So we have emphasised on the formation of national consensus government."
The PM further said it was natural and a democratic practice for oppositions to criticise the government. "But the criticism should be constructive and government should be judged on the basis of its merit(s) and demerit(s)." RSS
