Kathmandu, June 7
Leaders of Nepali Congress and CPN-UML Thursday stressed that the next CA election was not possible in the present circumstances and alleged the Prime Minister as inviting a serious constitutional crisis.
At a press meet, jointly organized by NC and UML, leaders also informed that the parties had completed all preparations to organize the mass meeting on June 8 at Khulamanch.
NC general secretary Krishna Prasad Sitaula blamed the Prime Ministerís power-hungry nature as the main cause behind the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly (CA).
"There is no reason other than the PMís power-hungry nature for the CA dissolution," he said.
He alleged that the PM had brought a serious constitutional crisis.
Sitaula also said that the new CA election was not possible in times of serious political and constitutional crisis.
"Constitution could not come due to the dishonesty of the ruling parties," he said.
UML leader Yogesh Bhattarai blamed that the Maoist partyís totalitarianism was emerging more dangerously than that of Pol Pot.
Leader Bhattarai also urged all to unite for freedom of press and democracy.
NC leader Balkrishna Khand said that the parties should make a clear roadmap for bringing the new constitution in the future and unite to fight against the dictatorship and power capturing politics.
NC leader Chandra Bhandari said that democrats should unite as democracy, press freedom and human rights were at risk due to totalitarianism of the Maoist party.
Press Chautari chairman Gagan Bista said that the Maoists were effortful to bring journalists into their fold or keep them neutral.
He said that the Maoists were trying to use threats or were buying journalists and stressed that the journalists should fight against the Maoist totalitarianism.
Nepal Press Union chairman Kiran Pokharel said stressed unity among the democrats to foil attacks on journalists and the media.
On the occasion, journalists Harihar Birahi, Kedar Koirala, Tanka Panta, Prakash Giri, Prakash Chandra Pariyar, and Nakul Aryal stressed that the journalists should unite to establish democracy and press freedom.
