Holding the leadership of major parties—UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress and CPN-UML— and the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) responsible for the Constituent Assembly debacle, the CPN-Maoist charged that they are unable to make right decision and their conclusion cannot be taken for the national consensus. Issuing a press statement on behalf of the party, Spokesperson Pampha Bhusal said that the party is concerned over the President’s latest act of limiting the politics within the key three parties and UDMF only instead of seeking out multiparty political consensus.
The CPN-Maoist further dubbed the President meeting the parties of dissolved Constituent Assembly as undemocratic and futile effort. Saying his India visit at the time the country is reeling under political crisis and uncertainty is irrelevant and irresponsible, the CPN-Maoist urged the President to cancel it. Earlier today, the President had summoned the parties that represented in the dissolved CA at his office in Sheetal Niwas and urged them to forge the political consensus and suggest him the ways to resolve the existing crisis.
