KATHMANDU: CPN-UML on Sunday heavily criticised the Maoist-led coalition government for its failure in taking up the responsibilities related to peace process‚ constitution-making‚ good governance and prosperity.
Conducting a press conference at the party central office in Balkhu this afternoon‚ the UML leaders stressed on the need for Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai’s ouster to pave the way for the formation a national consensus government.
Only the new national consensus government and holding elections under it can rescue the country from the existing political crisis‚ they said.
Speaking on the occasion‚ party leader Bharat Mohan Adhikari said‚ “Bhattarai-led government has completely failed as it could not conclude peace and constitution nor did it provide well-being and good governance to the people.”
Though earlier it was said that party Chairman Jhala Nath Khanal would attend the conference‚ he did not show up.
According to Adhikari‚ the transition will remain prolonged as long as the Bhattarai-led government remains though it needs to be ended at the earliest for the well being of the country.
He also flayed the government for the frequent transfer of high-ranking officials‚ saying this has made a mockery of the promise of good governance.
Rampant load-shedding has also contradicted the assurance of prosperity‚ he added.
