Nepal: Opposition parties vow protests against PM
Kathmandu: Nepal`s opposition parties say Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai has no moral or legal grounds to stay in power.
Vowing to topple Bhattarai’s government, Nepali Congress senior leader Arjun Narsingh said on Wednesday his party and 14 others elected to the last Parliament have agreed to hold protests and rallies to pressure the PM to resign.
Bhattarai`s opponents say he lost his legitimacy on Sunday when the Constituent Assembly expired without drafting a new Constitution. Bhattarai says he will lead a caretaker government until another Assembly is picked in elections he intends to hold in November.
Narsingh said the opposition has no problems with elections but they should not be conducted by Bhattarai`s government.
