KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli said that he dissolved the House of Representatives (HoR) of the federal parliament and opted to go for elections to take a fresh mandate of the people as "political horse trading" of Members of Parliament had begun once again in the country.

Inaugurating the second national assembly of the Press Organisation Nepal in Kathmandu today, chair of one of the factions of Nepal Communist Party (NCP) PM Oli reiterated that the government and his party were determined to move ahead on the journey of development and prosperity by removing the obstacles.

"Cultural and every other kind of attacks are being made on the nation. We should all be vigilant against such activities. We need to forge consensus if we want to build the nation and save it," PM Oli shared.

He further said, "We are not the ones who harbour rage, aggression and prejudice. We are the ones who wave the red flag and not the ones who wave the black flag. We are clear on our goal and march towards a bright future," PM Oli claimed, adding, "we also have the obligation of building the country and pave the path of good governance and development."

On a different note, PM Oli also said that the yellow journalism will itself go away and urged the journalists to write in favour of the country, people, democracy, stability and the truth.
