Madhesi leader demands Nepal PM Oli’s resignation

Kathmandu : Senior Madhesi leader and Sadbhawana Party co-chairman Laxman Lal Karna has demanded the resignation of Nepal Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli for being unsuccessful in governing so far.

“This government has not done anything new yet, besides giving trouble to people,” the Himalayan Times quoted him as saying at a programme organised at the Reporters’ Club here on Thursday.

He warned of launching a massive protest from mid-April if the government did not address the demands of Nepal’s ethnic Madhesi community.

“We had given an ultimatum till mid-April to address the demands, but the government has not taken any initiative till now,” Karna said.

“The Oli government is indulging in corruption and black marketing, as people are not getting fuel and cooking gas easily even as there is no obstruction at border entry points,” he added.

Karna said the next phase of agitation would be capital-centric. (ANI)
