Kathmandu: Nepal`s main opposition party
on Monday disrupted the Parliament, demanding Prime Minister
Jhalnath Khanal`s resignation over his decision to reshuffle
Nepali Congress (NC) has expressed strong objection
over the UCPN (Maoist) decision to reshuffle its ministers in
the JN Khanal led cabinet.
In place of Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister
Krishna Bahadur Mahara, the Maoist central committee meeting
yesterday nominated Narayan Kaji Shrestha, vice president of
the party, to lead its ministerial team with the portfolio of
Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister.
The Nepali Congress has also obstructed the Parliament
meeting today demanding resignation of the Prime Minister. It
was against the five point deal to nominate new ministers by
the Maoist party.
In a top brass meeting of the major three political
parties - CPN-UML, Maoist and NC today, the NC objected to the
Maoists` preparation to change the ministers representing the
party in the Cabinet.
The meeting was held at the residence of NC President
Sushil Koirala in Maharajgunj, Kathmandu to discuss peace,
statute and formation of a national consensus government.
Yesterday, the Maoist Central Committee had endorsed
the proposal put forth by Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal on
peace, statute and organisational reshuffling.
