Prez's step essential to end crisis: Khanal
KATHMANDU, SEP 10 - Chairman of CPN-UML Jhala Nath Khanal has said president's intervention was essential to end present political and constitutional crisis in the country.
Addressing a gathering of the office bearers of sister organizations and different fronts of the party at party headquarters, Balkhu, on Monday, Chairman Khanal expressed hope that the President would take proper step to end the constitutional crisis.
"Time is ripe for the President to take a move because the consensus through dialogues among the parties is getting slim", he argued.
Moreover, he said a people's movement was also needed to free the country from crisis and the party would announce for a people's movement against government on October 5.
"The UCPN-Maoist dissolved the Constituent Assembly with the haughty ambition of getting two-third majority in the elections," he blamed.
UML Chairman Khanal claimed that proposer of federalism was his party and it was worrying why his party was depicted the one against federalism. Also, he asserted that there was no dispute in his party on federalism.
The front coordinator and party secretary Shankar Pokhrel said a vigorous movement was the need of hour to end present imbroglio.
He accused the government of acting tyrannically.
