NC-Maoist alliance to thwart elections: Bijukchhe

KATHMANDU:  The chairman of Nepal Workers and Peasants Party (NWPP), Narayan Man Bijukchhe, claimed that the coalition between Nepali Congress and CPN Maoist Centre was formed with an intent to thwart elections.

According to Bijukchhe, the Nepali Congress and Maoist party made efforts to pull down the KP Sharma Oli-led government as they did not want local, provincial as well as federal elections, which are required to implement the Constitution. He was speaking at an interaction with media in Bhaktapur on Wednesday,

Referring to the past performance of governments led by Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba, Bijukchhe said they have not shown any glimmer of hope of performance at present also.

Saying his party supported the Oli-led government as it performed well for the country and people, the top NWPP leader, added the NWPP party would decide whether to support the new government based on it performance.

For now, the NWPP, however, would not stay in opposition, he announced.

Bijukchhe accusing Maoist Chairman Dahal of double standards on national politics even though Dahal appreciated Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli as a statesman after he stepped down.
