10/17/2017

Kathmandu, Oct. 17: The CPN (Maoist-Centre), the coalition partner in the Nepali Congress-led government, has put off its decision to leave the government for the time being.
At a press meet organised at the Home Ministry today, Home Minister Janardan Sharma (from the party) said the party was not pulling out of the government immediately.
"The party was informed by the Election Commission that the elections date is being put off. The idea to postpone the elections could not be entertained under any circumstance. So the party decided not to go with the plan to leave the government immediately."
But, he did not make it clear that who was planning to hold over the polls and how. Further information about it would come soon, he added.
According to him, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Krishna Bahadur Mahara who heads the party in the government was reported about the government preparation to put off the elections as he was on the way to meet Prime Minister to submit a letter about the party's decision to quit the government.
With this information, he turned back without submitting the letter.
Minister Sharma made it clear that the party will not stay in the government even a single minute if the elections on the announced dates are guaranteed. "The party does not wish and desire to remain in the government, but the elections on time must be ensured."  RSS
