NC to oppose govt’s ‘unpopular moves’
Jul 4, 2018-The main opposition, Nepali Congress, has decided to stand up against all unpopular decisions of the government that contravene the wish and aspirations of the people.
A meeting of the top NC leaders held at the residence of party President Sher Bahadur Deuba on Tuesday discussed various issues related to the government’s functioning, and concluded that the government led by the Nepal Communist Party had made several decisions that are against democratic principles.
“This government has undermined the constitutional provision and we have decided to raise voice against it,” said NC Joint Secretary General Prakash Sharan Mahat.
The current set-up of Parliament where both Speaker and Deputy Speaker are from the same party, banning people from holding peaceful assemblies at some areas, hunger strike of Ganga Maya Adhikari for justice and inflation were among the topics that were discussed in the meeting.
“The anomalies are increasing. The health condition of Ganga Maya Adhikari is worsening. The government has imposed ban on demonstrations in certain areas. Civil liberties are
weakening by the day, so we have decided to take up this issue in federal and provincial parliaments,” said Mahat.
During the meeting, the leaders discussed in detail the completion of the party merger with the Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar-led Madhesi Jana Adhikar Forum, holding the Mahasamiti meeting and party restructuring in the backdrop of the recent poll debacle.
“No date has been discussed but it will be convened at convenient time,” Mahat said, adding that some procedures need to be completed before calling the Mahasamiti meeting.
