Kathmandu, July 5
Nepali Congress (NC) president Sushil Koirala Thursday said that political consensus was essential to resolve the ongoing crisis. Speaking at an interaction organised by BP Thought Academy, Koirala said that if Maoists ignored the consensus politics, they would be finished like as other dictators.
He also urged the Maoists to implement the earlier agreements to start consensus politics.
He said the ongoing political crisis would be resolved through political consensus and added that the Maoists should implement the principles of consensus to end the current national crisis.
He said that all parties should concentrate on ending political and constitutional crises of Nepal.
Koirala said that the Maoists were not consulting with any political force while dissolving the Constituent Assembly (CA) and stressed that the current crisis arose after the dissolution of the CA.
He said, "Nationality, democracy and prosperity were the agenda of the NC as propounded by socialist democratic leader later BP Koirala. The NC is following the path of BP Koirala and will never back from the principles of late Koirala."
He said that if the democratic forces implemented the path of late BP Koirala, the ongoing political crisis would be resolved.
NC leader Manamohan Bhattarai said that the there was no possibility to hold the new CA election and demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister to start consensus politics.
He said that the government failed to arrange the security of the people and international visitors and added, "The government is competing to manage the security situation of Nepal."
Youth Force chairman Mahesh Basnet said that the Maoist chairman was not a leader of proletariats and added that the Maoist leaders were concentrating their efforts to achieve power and property for their better life.
He said that young generation should be conscious about the government’s preparation to provide the management system of Tribhuvan International Airport to the international institutions.
NC leader Sher Bahadur Bhandari said that the new generation should be aware of BP’s principles.
BP Though Academy chairman Haribol Bhattarai said that the academy was trying to advocate the BP’s thoughts for the new and young generation.
