KATHMANDU: Senior leader of the CPN-UML and former Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has said there is no alternative for the present government to ending the present political and constitutional crisis in the country.
Speaking at a memorial meeting organised at the Ganeshman statue premises at Tokha Ganeshsthan by the Ganeshman Singh Centre to mark the 15 th memorial day of the late Ganeshman Singh, he said it is not justified to stick to power by prolonging the country's transition.
Senior leader Nepal said efforts for consensus were being made and a way out will come for ending the crisis and that the exit of the present government is the first condition for the resolution of the country's crises.
Nepal said the country is feeling the absence of a seasoned and unselfish statesman like Ganeshman, who does not hanker after power in the present political arena.
Nepali Congress General Secretary Prakashman Singh said other issues will get an outlet only after formation of a national consensus government, and added that for that, Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai should step down.
He said the politics revolving around power is never long-lasting.General Secretary Singh expressed the view that all the parties should stand at one place forending the current crisis as Ganeshman Singh had made the people's movement in 2046 BS successful by bringing all communist parties at one place.
Similarly, central member of NC, Narahari Acharya, said all the parties should be involved selflessly to find out solution to the country's crises.
Chairman of the Centre, Baburaja Chitrakar, said Ganeshman was far from the greed of power for national welfare and added that a leader, who wants to be a statesman, should adopt that very path.
On the occasion, Nepal planted saplings of Rudrakshya and Singh and Acharya planted saplings of camphor tree.
