Kathmandu: Nepal`s main opposition party has
accused the ruling Maoist party of being dishonest in
implementing the seven-point pact to conclude the 2006 peace
process in the country.
Nepali Congress (NC) president Sushil Koirala
said that the UCPN-Maoist should create an environment to end
the current political stalemate.
He said that all political issues would be resolved if UCPN-M honestly implemented the seven-point pact.
Koirala was speaking at a function organised in the
capital yesterday to release the commemorative postage stamp
of veteran democratic leader and former Prime Minister Girija
Lack of confidence among the political parties is the
main hurdle that was obstructing the ongoing peace process, he
"Parliamentary system of governance is best for a
country like Nepal," he said.
"Stability, peace, democracy and constitution are the
aim of NC. We never compromise against the democratic system."
Koirala said that his party was ready for all kinds of
sacrifices to conclude the peace process and asked the Maoists
to play a positive role in concluding the historical tasks of
peace and statute.
"The federal system based on Nepal`s geographical
feature will be suitable for Nepal," he said adding the new
federal structure should maintain unity among the people of
Terai, Hills and Mountains."
The Postal Services Department has issued one million
commemorative postage stamps of former prime minister and
Nepali Congress leader late Girija Prasad Koirala.
