Jun 6, 2018-
The Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal has decided to continue its support to the Sanghiya Samajbadi Forum-Nepal in Province 2. Brushing off rumours that the coalition partners were parting way after the SSF-N joined the KP Sharma-led federal government, a meeting of the six-member presidium of the RJP-N on Tuesday decided to keep the provincial coalition intact.
“We have decided to continue with our strong support to the government under the SSF-N in Province 2 despite the latest development in the central government,” said Anil Jha, a leader of party’s presidium.Another influential leader in the presidium, Rajendra Mahato, also claimed that Tuesday’s meeting decided to continue party’s support to the SSF-N-led government in Province 2. “We have agreed on the fact that the developments in the central government will not have any affect whatsoever on the existing coalition in Province 2 government,” Mahato said.
The Tuesday’s presidium meeting also decided to recommend Kalpana Pandey, who was listed after Binu Panta, as the member of Province 5 parliament. Panta had tendered her resignation citing health reason.
The party on Tuesday started discussions on its statute and programmes for the upcoming national convention besides selection of parliamentary party officials, including its leader and deputy leader.
The RJP-N has failed to select the parliamenary party due to differences among its leaders.
The meeting will continue on Wednesday where the leaders would try to find a common ground on all the issues and take their understanding to a political committee meeting scheduled to begin
