KATHMANDU, July 4: Nepali Congress, the main opposition party, has decided to voice against KP Sharma Oli led government’s undemocratic practices on five fronts: parliament, streets, media, social media and peaceful protest.
Any Nepali political party has the constitutional right to organize peaceful protests and meetings at any place of its choosing inside the country. This is a matter of principle, not of individual political beliefs.
Nepalis often have unrealistic hopes of their parliamentarians. They expect their elected representatives to solve their each and every problem—the long hours of load-shedding, shortage of drinking water, inflation, pollution, poverty, you name it—preferably overnight.
