Janaboli/20 Feb, Kathmandu. Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum-Nepal (MJF-N) Chairman Upendra Yadav accused Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN-UML of having a nexus with the former monarch Gyanendra Shah before the announcement of republicanism.
Yadav said so in the light of Shah’s urge to implement agreements reached with him while settling the 2006 Janaandolan.[box]Former king Shah‚ in his message on the eve of Democracy Day on Wednesday‚ had asked political parties to implement the agreements made with him‚ without explaining what they were.[box]
Shah, in his message on the eve of Democracy Day on Wednesday, had asked political parties to implement the agreements made with him, without explaining what they were.
Speaking at an interaction at the Reporters’ Club in the Capital on Friday, the Madhesi leader said the former king as well as NC and UML should reveal what they had agreed for.
NC-UML’s repeated wish for ceremonial monarchy and reluctance to announce the republicanism before the first meeting of the first Constituent Assembly (CA) prove the partnership, he claimed.
Reiterates consensus for constitution
Meanwhile, Yadav reiterated that the CA should issue the new constitution on the basis of consensus.
The head of a major constituent of UCPN-Maoist-led 30-party opposition alliance warned of intense protests if ruling parties ignored their demands for consensus.
If ruling parties express a commitment to implement past agreements, the opposition forces are ready for talks, he maintained.
NC-UML coalition should realise that they can not implement the statute unilaterally without the opposition and correct the errors, he said.
