KATHMANDU, April 13: CPN-UML Chair KP Sharma Oli has said that his party is capable of providing stability to the country's democracy.
He said this while addressing an extensive party assembly organized by the UML Biratnagar Metropolitan Committee here today. Oli said the party is making efforts to bring all Nepalis of various linguistic communities and living in different geographical regions to the great campaign of consolidating the federal republic and vesting the sovereignty of the people through a common movement of all Nepalis.
The former Prime Minister stressed that Nepal's water should be used for the benefit of Nepalis. Calling on the industrialists and businessmen to make the country self-reliant by setting up tourism and export-oriented industries, he said the UML would extend its full cooperation in this regard.
The UML chief expressed his determination to thwart any efforts by any quarters to push the country toward instability, stating that the people will not accept the conspiracy to render the local governments without the people's elected representatives. He said works on upgrading the Hulaki Highway and the East-West Highway were expedited and various airports were expanded for operation of night flights when he was the prime minister.
Oli also accused the ruling five-party alliance of ruining the country's economy.
On the occasion, Oli welcomed the cadres and members of other parties who had quit their parties to join the UML.
