CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ today has ruled out any power-sharing with the judiciary in the recent expansion of the Cabinet.

Stating that Gajendra Hamal has been appointed as a minister from the ruling Nepali Congress quota, the former Prime Minister said that there is no need to make it an issue.

Talking to media persons here today, he defended Hamal’s appointment as a minister stating that the constitution has a provision to appoint a non-lawmaker as a minister for six months. “In the past, there have been examples of assigning non-lawmakers as ministers. This is not the first case”.

On another note, he said that the incumbent government was at work to save the lives of the people by providing them with COVID-19 vaccines.

Other issues prioritised by the government are to proceed with development activities and stalled bills, he said.

On the issue of disputed Lipulek, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura, he said, “we are the one who in the past too raised the issue and was in favour of presenting the issue at parliament. Now the issue has also been incorporated in the government’s policies and programmes.”

On MCC, he said that the subject requires national consensus and its amendment. “The issue cannot be endorsed without national consensus and its amendment.”

He accused the main opposition CPN UML of unnecessarily obstructing the parliament reasoning that it has no moral and political right to do so.

On a different note, he said that a political alliance would be formed to compete in the next elections in Chitwan district
