KATHMANDU, Jan 20: CPN (UML) senior leader Jhalanath Khanal has said it was not appropriate to protest against the announcement of temporary capitals of provinces.
Speaking at a program in capital on Saturday, he declared that provisional capitals would not remain as permanent capitals. "The province will itself decide its permanent capitals." The government had not used its conscience while announcing the temporary centers, however.
He further added a new government under the leadership of the UML would be formed in the third week of February and institutionalisation of democracy, strengthening of nation's sovereignty and integrity, acceleration of economic transformation and consolidation of nation's relations with the international community would be given top priority by a new government.
Stating that abolition of unemployment, poverty, underdevelopment, health problems and illiteracy were both challenges and opportunities of a government to be formed ahead, he expressed his hope that a new leadership would successfully face such challenges and meet the goals of building a prosperous and happy Nepal.
