Govt doing nothing to hold polls, says Oli

CHITWAN: The CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli accused the incumbent government that it was not trying to hold elections by making various pretexts.

Speaking at a press meet organised by the Chitwan chapter of Press Chautari Nepal at Bharatpur Airport in Chitwan on Saturday, Oli said that it, however, was impossible to thwart elections.

Oli reiterated that the Nepali Congress-Maoist alliance government would not sustain for a long and turn into a failure without holding elections.

He, however, maintained that no any alternative to the government had been sought yet.

The UML chief further accused the government of not performing any worthy work during its first six months in the office.

Complaining the government of making unnecessary delays to receive the report from the Local Bodies Reconstruction Commission, Oli claimed that the government was trying to take more time by creating disputes in delineation of local bodies.


Assuming the Constitution amendment as unnecessary, inappropriate and harmful; the main opposition leader at the House repeated that the Constitution amendment proposal would ultimately turn into a failure.

During the press meet, Oli also informed that he had talked with Prime Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Friday and he warned the PM that the country and people would face crisis if the government tries to extend its term by delaying elections.
