Nepali Congress senior leader Ramchandra Poudel has accused the incumbent government of attempting to centralise power, thus putting democracy at risk. The government is trying to centralize the state power on the back support of majority.
Speaking at a press meet organised by the Nepal Press Union (NPU), Sindhuli, leader Poudel claimed the school had proved it a complete failure in a year of the establishment.
The government intention to own the rights of big projects, military power and judicial bodies has pushed democracy towards a risk.
As he said, government failed to address issues relating to peace, security, good governance, development and prosperity. According to him, it was wrong to ban the Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) led by Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’ by the government and the decision should be reconsidered. He was of the view that issues capable of weakening nationality and democracy should not be taken into referendum.
The NC senior leader said the party is launching the ‘Madhesh Dialogue Campaign’. He went on to say that the Nepali Congress failed to carry out a role of effective opposition and an end to factionalism seen in the party was his priority of the hour, not leadership. “If time demands, I am ready to take the responsibility of leadership. ”
Three of the five people, who died after a passenger bus heading towards Kathmandu from Kakarvitta of Jhapa met with an accident and fell into the Trishuli river this morning, have been identified. Of them four died on the spot while one died on the way to hospital, police said.
