Nepal Madhesi party slams PM for late resignation

President of Madhesi Peoples Rights Forum (Democratic), said that a national consensus government will be formed within a month if Khanal tenders his resignation.



Kathmandu: The chief of a Madhesi party
from Nepal`s Terai plains bordering India on Monday slammed the
embattled Prime Minister Jhala Nath Khanal for delaying his
resignation, saying he has become the main hindrance in
forging a national consensus in the country.

Bijay Kumar Gachhadhar, the president of Madhesi
Peoples Rights Forum (Democratic), said that a national
consensus government will be formed within a month if Khanal
tenders his resignation.

Gachhadhar, a former deputy prime minister, slammed
Khanal for delaying his resignation, saying he has become the
main hindrance in building a national consensus.

Interacting with mediapersons in southern Nepal`s
Chitwan district, the top Madhesi leader warned of launching a
stir if Khanal ignored the demand for his resignation as per
the five-point pact between the main parties that paved the
way for the extension of parliament`s term on May 29.

The CPN-UML, UCPN-Maoist and main opposition Nepali
Congress had agreed that the prime minister would quit so that
a national government could be formed.

Gachhadhar claimed that consensus could be formed
under the leadership of Madhes-based parties if the main
parties failed to form a national unity government.

Meanwhile, the main opposition party Nepali Congress
has threatened to launch an agitation if the Maoists failed to
expedite the peace process and frame a new constitution.

Nepal Maoists, who ended their decade-long civil war
in 2006 and emerged as the single largest party in the 2008
Assembly election, are the main ally of the Communist-led
coalition.

Khanal was elected the prime minister on February 3
after 17 attempts over a seven months period with the crucial
support of the Maoists.
