Ruling country through ordinance is authoritarian practice: Khanal


KATHMANDU: Chairman of the CPN-UML, Jhalanath Khanal, has said it was authoritarian practice to rule the country with ordinances.

Addressing the third meeting of the council of the General Federation of Nepalese Trade Unions (GEFONT) affiliated to his party in the capital Tuesday, Chairman Khanal said storm of people’s movement was essential against government’s move to rule country with ordinances.

The bill brought on election without political consensus would not be implemented, he said, claiming that election if announced many times but without consensus would not be successful at all.

“We realized the need of unity, but the Maoists realized the need of destruction. It is the reason behind eluding consensus,” he argued.

He accused the foreign forces of inciting former constituent assembly members of ethnic and Madhesi communities to form a caucus thereby foiling the consensus on constitution.

On the occasion, senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal said the Prime Minister has lost the moral ground to continue power as the Election Commission has already ruled out the possibility of election.

If the country adopts ethnicity-based federalism, it would turn into Rwanda, he warned, and suggested that the contentious issues of federalism could be solved through referendum.

Similarly, Vice-Chairman Bam Dev Gautam said the imperialist forces were inciting the ethnic conflict in Nepal.

It was the need of day to frustrate ultra-leftist vision of the UCPN-Maoist and secessionist thoughts of the Madhes-based parties, he underscored.

Moreover, party general secretary Ishwor Pokhrel said there was no option but to go for fresh mandate to free country from crisis. RSS
