Nepali Congress Will Wait For Supreme Court Verdict On House Dissolution: Deuba

Chief opposition Nepali Congress marked the 45th National Reconciliation Day, stressing that foreign powers should not be given a room to play in the internal differences of Nepal’s political forces.

By N24 Staff Writer, KATHMANDU:- Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that the chief opposition party is not going to protest anymore on the street until the Supreme Court delivers its final verdict on the ongoing House of Representatives dissolution case.

“We believe in rule of law and we will respect the Supreme Court’s verdict on the House dissolution case. Until that, we will not launch any street protests,” NC President Deuba said.

“We believe that PM Oli’s step of dissolving the House is unconstitutional. But it is not fair to exert pressure on the Supreme Court from the street putting forth demands on a pending case,” Deuba said.

Deuba’s statement has come at a time when NC leaders are pondering whether to demand a House reinstatement or face the election. In both cases, there is no legal and constitutional way out than to wait for the court verdict on the House dissolution case.

Deuba was addressing a virtual event organized by NC’s Information, Communication and Publicity Department on the occasion of National Reconciliation Day on Thursday, December 31, 2020.

NC has been observing National Reconciliation Day for the past 45 years on Poush 16 every year to mark the repatriation of NC’s founding President BP Koirala from a long exile in India in 1976.

Koirala returned to Nepal with the spirit of Nepali nationalism and reconciliation, stressing that foreign powers should not be given a room to play in the internal differences of Nepal’s political forces.

Koirala’s legacy was later carried out by Ganesh Man Singh, Krishna Prasad Bhattarai and Girija Prasad Koirala, who took to the street in 1990 and restored multiparty democracy in Nepal.

The political change of 1990 ultimately paved way for a federal and republic Nepal under the current democratic system based on pluralism.
