Kamal Thapa urges Dahal to correct decision on change of guard

Hetaunda (Nepal) : Nepal’s Deputy Prime Minister and Rastriya Prajatantra Party chairman Kamal Thapa has urged Unified Communist Party of Nepal -Maoist (UCPN-M) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal to correct his party’s decision to seek support from other parties to form the government under his leadership.

The third largest party of Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli-led ruling coalition insisted that the Maoist party should act responsibly to complete the Constitution implementation process.

“Prachanda (Dahal) should not make any hurry to form a new government with a lust of the prime minister’s position,” the Himalayan Times quoted him as saying.

He however, said that he was hopeful that Dahal would withdraw the decision.

Thapa further warned that attempts to topple the government would put the peace process at risk. (ANI)
