Alliance over: RJP-N

KATHMANDU: Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal leader Rajendra Mahato said the FSF-N’s agreement with the government meant that the alliance between the FSF-N and the RJP-N was over.

“As far as our alliance in the Province 2 government is concerned, we are watching developments carefully and if our alliance is broken in Province 2 too, we are ready to deal with the situation,” he added. He said the FSF-N’s decision to leave the Madhesi alliance would benefit the ruling party.

“The agreement between NCP and FSF-N on constitution amendment is positive, but we’ll have to see that the agreement is implemented and does not meet the fate of past agreements which remained on paper,” Mahato told THT.

The RJP-N (17 seats), however, has not withdrawn its support to the Oli-led federal government. Although the RJP-N did not support the government’s policies and programmes endorsed on Sunday, the FSF-N supported it.

FSF-N even withdrew its amendment proposal on the policies and programmes after Oli promised to resolve issues related to constitution amendment and citizenship.
