JANAKPURDHAM: Minister for Information and Communications Raj Kishor Yadav has said that consensus and cooperation is the best weapon for averting political mishap in the country.
Talking to media persons at Janakpur airport today, Minister Yadav said the agendas of fresh election and reinstatement of the dissolved Constituent Assembly have been presented realizing the need of consensus and cooperation among the political powers. Efforts are underway at the political level to finalize the issues, he said.
Rescuing the country from being the prisoner of indecision was the need of the hour, Yadav said and added that the incumbent government is not an obstacle for forging consensus and thereby breaking political deadlock.
Though opting for fresh elections is the best alternative for clearing the political impasse, revival of the CA could be considered on the basis of political consent since the dissolved CA has already completed 95 per cent of the task of constitution-drafting.
A four-point agreement between the UCPN (Maoist) and the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) is the base of the formation of the incumbent government and the UDMF would not back away from the Madhes agendas, said Yadav who is also the chairman of the Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (Republican).
In response to a query by journalists, Yadav said though there was a need of a powerful Madhes-centric party to fight for the rights of the Madhes people, no practical efforts for this has been made so far.
