UML Secy: PM should quit if he fails to hold polls
Feb 13, 2017-
CPN-UML Secretary Yogesh Bhattarai has come down heavily on Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, saying that he should step down from the post if he cannot hold local level elections on time. He also made a pitch for the formation of consensus government if the present government failed to conduct polls.
“The important step for implementing constitution is holding the elections. Therefore, if this government cannot conduct elections, next consensus government should be formed to do so,” said Bhattarai in Okhaldhunga on Sunday.
Bhattarai made a remark that the elections should be held under the new structure rather than the existing ones and that they should be conducted before amending the constitution. “If problems persist even after the elections, the constitution can then be amended,” said Bhattarai.
He pointed out the danger of possible disruptions by CK Raut-like extremists if Madhes-based parties stayed away from the elections. He advised the regional parties come together and win the trust of their constituencies.

He also blamed the ruling parties for not doing enough to implement the constitution.
