CPN-UML in no mood to launch stir

Biratnagar, November 6:

CPN-UML standing committee member Bharat Mohan Adhikari today said the UML was not for changing the leadership of the government.

Adhikari said this a day after Maoist leader Dr Baburam Bhattarai warned of changing the leadership of the government if it failed to implement the majority decision of the parliament.

Speaking to journalists at a tea reception organised by the Morang chapter of CPN-UML on the occasion of Tihar festival here, Adhikari said, “Whatever be the thinking of the Maoists, the CPN-UML is not of the view of changing the leadership of the government.”

“ CPN-UML will not launch any agitation if the decision of the parliament were not implemented,” he said, adding, “UML is not for agitation but for the polls.” He added that the party is for generating consensus.

He urged Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala to resolve the problem in the regular session of the parliament beginning November 19. He said PM’s role would be important to implement the proposals passed by the special session of the parliament.

Bamdev begs to differ

Kathmandu: Politburo member of CPN-UML Bamdev Gautam said on Tuesday that the unity among the seven parties did not mean following the stance of NC. Addressing a function here, he said the party has decided to put forth the agenda to change the government leadership. He revealed that NC was ready to let the Maoist go out from the seven-party unity. — HNS
