Parliamentary impasse ends by Tuesday: PM Dahal

2024 May 13, 7:56,

 Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has expressed belief that the deadlock in parliament would cease by Tuesday.

"I'm in close consultation with top leaders of major opposition Nepali Congress on how the deadlock could be cleared. So, I hope the impasse will end by Monday evening or Tuesday morning," PM Dahal shared.

Talking to media persons here Sunday, PM Dahal informed that he had a meeting with President Ram Chandra Paudel after giving a final touch to the policy and programmes. "President Paudel is scheduled to address the joint sitting of the federal parliaments on May 14. Preparation for it is over," Dahal shared.

The PM further viewed as the policies and programmes were already given a final shape, there would not be any problem on President's address in the parliament. "I do not think the NC, a veteran political party advocating for parliament, would not create discomfort during the address," he believed.

On a different note, he said even the Home Minister had agreed in principle to form a committee to address the problems facing cooperatives victims.

In response to journalists' query relating to GB Rai, who is accused of misappropriating cooperatives' funds, PM Dahal said it was illogical to say that erstwhile government helped him flee the country. "Government is clear on bringing GB Rai back to the country for investigation. There are however passport related issues," he said, arguing, "There is no point in saying the erstwhile government and home minister helped Rai flee the country."

In a different note, he reminded that the previous alliance was broken after the efforts to share major posts to major political parties including the Presidential post to NC were not realized. "There is no basis for NC to think of negative to me and so is for me to NC," Dahal stressed.
