CPN-U withdraws support to govt

KATHMANDU: CPN-United on Tuesday said it had withdrawn support to the CPN-UML led government for failing to resolve the existing problem in the country.

According to Jaya Dev Joshi, a leader of the parliamentary party that has just three lawmakers in the House, the government itself was involved in black-marketing.

He said the party’s central committee meeting decided to withdraw support to the KP Sharma Oli-led government. He also said the government had failed to implement its six-point demand presented while supporting the government.

The party’s Chairman Ganesh Sah was one of the members of the High-Level Political Coordination Committee formed to support the government.
