Mahat welcomes Ban-visit cancellation


KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress (NC) central member Dr. Ram Sharan Mahat has welcomed the deferral of United Nation’s General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon’s proposed visit to Nepal.

Stating that the visit was ill timed, Mahat said that the visit should be arranged at a more appropriate time in the future while speaking at the face to face program of Reporters Club Nepal on Friday.

In a different context, Mahat termed the agreement with Three Gorges for the construction of West Seti Hydropower Project a positive act.

The incumbent government has been a total failure since the four-point deal with Madhes-based parties was made barely to serve individual and partisan interests, Dr. Mahat commented, adding that there is no alternative for the Prime Minister to immediately resign from his post.

On the occasion, Unified CPN (Maoist) leader Haribol Gajurel has said that the Prime Minister would resign from his post only when alternative for the formation of all-party national consensus government was guaranteed.

‘Demanding resignation of the Prime Minister by party Vice-chairperson Mohan Baidhya without presenting alternative is just a move to foil the peace and constitution-drafting processes,’ he said.

Similarly, CPN-UML secretary Shanker Pokharel said the present government is losing its strengths due to the growing internal rift within the UCPN (Maoist) rather than the pressure by the opposition parties and accused the Prime Minister of being engaged in populist tiny matters and deviating from the process to complete peace and constitution-making.

Co-chairperson of Rastriya Janashakti Party, Dr. Prakash Chandra Lohani said the tasks of completing peace and constitution-making are not moving towards the conclusion, as  the Maoists have adopted two-leg approach of peace and violence.

He also urged the stakeholders to invite Ban-Ki moon to pay visit to Nepal after the conclusion of peace and constitution-drafting process.
