KATHMANDU: Leaders of major political parties today said national consensus is a must for resolution of the political crisis plaguing the country, even as they accused each other for the political crisis. At a Media Vision-organised programme in the Capital, UCPN-Maoist politburo member Agni Prasad Sapkota said this is no time to engage in blame game but to put in efforts to tide the country over the crisis on the basis of political consensus.
He, however, accused the Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML of causing the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly by not agreeing on ethnic federalism.
NC central member Arjun Narsing KC called on peoples of different castes and creeds to stand united for the sake of national integrity and ethnic harmony. The importance of consensus was not lost on KC, who said that only an all-party agreement can give a way out of the crisis resulting from the dissolution of the CA.
The blame game continued at the programme with KC accusing the government of making a unilateral decision to hold the CA elections.
Speaking at the programme, UML standing committee member Bharat Mohan Adhikari called on the three major parties and the Madhesi front to build national consensus.
He said the government’s unilateral decision to hold CA polls on November 22 is at the root of the present crisis.
