ITAHARI: Nepali Congress senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba today blamed the Unified CPN-Maoist-led government for the worsening crisis in the country.
Addressing a gathering of the party cadres in Hansposa, Sunsari, Deuba said the country is slipping deeper into crisis due to the obstinacy of the ruling Maoist party. “The incumbent government did not hold the Constituent Assembly election as it promised. The election commission that was supposed to hold election is now without officials. Similarly all other constitutional bodies have also been vacated but the government led by the Maoist party is still busy holding the state power. This has only pushed the country to further crisis,” he added.
Defending the recent countrywide agitation by the opposition parties, the Congress leader said, “In fact, the ruling Maoist party is scheming to seize the state power for good by deliberately creating more disorder in the country hence the need for our agitation.”
Stressing on the need of a consensus government among all parties to resolve the crisis the country is long facing, Deuba said, “The only solution to solve the present crisis is consensus. Only a consensus government can guarantee a free and fair election.”
On journalist Dekendra Thapa’s murder case, he said the government has made mockery of law by disrupting the ongoing investigation into the case.
