ARGHAKHANCHI: Chief of the CPN-UML central disciplinary commission, Amrit Kumar Bohara, has said that the alliance of the ruling parties under the leadership of the UCPN-Maoist has taken the country towards confrontation.
"The irrelevant alliance formed at a time when what the country needed was a government of national unity for finding a way out of the current political and constitutional crisis has further increased the distance between the parties," he said.
Speaking in a press conference organised by the Press Chautari Nepal, Arghakhanchi in Sandhikharka on Saturday, Bohara stressed that there was no other alternative to agreement and consensus for bailing the country out of the political impasse.
He accused the UCPN-Maoist of trying to impose its domination by sticking to power, adding that the country has not got an outlet from the present constitutional and political imbroglio because of this attitude of the Maoist party.
CPN-UML politburo member and chief of the party's publicity department, Pradip Gyawali, urged the UCPN-Maoist to forge compromise with the established democratic parties like the UML and the Nepali Congress for the larger interests of the nation.
He warned that the democracy won through long sacrifice and struggle would be in peril if the political parties fail to forge consensus and work together.
Gyawali also said that the alliance of the ruling parties will further polarise the parties and take the country towards confrontation.
