Cong objects to PM Oli’s ‘provocative statements’
May 25, 2016-
The main opposition Nepali Congress has taken exception to some “provocative” statements made by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Madhes issues during an all-party meeting on Tuesday.
Some statements made by the prime minister and some ministers are not helping to create conducive environment to resolve the political standoff, said NC leader Mahesh Acharya after the meeting. Madhes-based parties had snubbed the all-party meeting called by PM Oli.
Stating that the demands and grievances of Madhesi and Janajati parties are
political in nature, the Congress, during the meeting, had urged the prime
minister to deal with them accordingly.
“We urged the prime minister to hold informal talks before holding formal
negotiations with the disgruntled parties,” Acharya added. “There is no alternative to talks.”
