KATHMANDU, Dec 4: The Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal could be the first party to withdraw its support to the government. The move comes at a time when Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli led government is under increasing criticism from all spheres.
Lakshman Lal Karna, a senior leader from the party said that there was no point to support the government because of its unilateral decisions. "We've decided to end our support in the next party meeting," he said in a program during a literacy program at Reporters Club Nepal's office.
Karna said that they had supported the Oli led government so that it would amend the constitution and withdraw the writs filed against party's cadres who were arrested during the revolution. "However, the government has done neither. Hence there's no purpose whatsoever," he said.
Karna vented his ire and said that the government had been unable to deliver its promises. "Instead, there's increasing violence and insecurity across the country."
"Even after four months of the incident, the government hasn't been able to nab the culprit. A child is raped, murdered and the culprit still is at large. Is there any biggest disgrace for the government?" he questioned.
Karna went further as he questioned the impromptu ending of 33 kg gold smuggling case and scorned the government's decision to participate in the Asia Pacific Summit. The latter has been widely criticized in the media and at the center is Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. The PM faces criticism for advocating Christianity and receiving the good governance award amounting USD 100,000.
Min Bishwakarma, former minister and leader of Nepali Congress also expressed his concerns over the government's involvement in the controversial summit while being unable to resolve Nirmala's rape and murder mystery. He opined that the government had failed miserably to curb violence, murders, and rapes, all of which are increasing remarkably.
