Kathmandu, November 8

A parliamentary party meeting of the Nepali Congress held at parliament building in New Baneshwor today decided to clarify to the government the party’s position on current national political agendas and play the role of a responsible opposition.

The meeting decided to put forth the party’s agendas in the Parliament and begin homework to consolidate the support of all opposition parties, according to NC leader Balkrishna Khand.

The PP meeting decided to put pressure on the government to pass bills related to constitution amendment and reconstruction authority, said Khand.

“The NC will work to bring all the agitating parties on board and win their support to make the voice of opposition strong,” said Khand.

Senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba said the NC should present itself responsibly and not obstruct the House at least for 100 days of formation of the new government. “Since the government is crushed under the weight of six deputy prime ministers and a jumbo cabinet, it will not last long,” Deuba told the meeting. Deuba also suggested to the government to make diplomatic efforts to end the blockade on borders.

Other members, including acting president of the party Ram Chandra Paudel, general secretaries Prakash Man Singh and Krishna Prasad Sitaula said the party should play a responsible role in the national politics.
