House won’t be dissolved, says Acharya

Biratnagar, May 22:

The three-day political convention organised by Ganeshman Singh Academic Foundation concluded here today. The meeting passed a proposal that the House of Representatives should not be dissolved in the present situation.

Speaking at a press meet organised by the foundation, former minister and one of the drafters of the 1990 Constitution, Nilambar Acharya, said: “It will be dangerous for Nepalis if the HoR is dissolved now.”

“Parliament has been able to represent people’s sentiments within a short period,” Acharya said. He said if the HoR is dissolved, the King will get a chance to play active role in politics. He suggested the Maoists not to force political parties to dissolve the House. He stated that the HoR is essential to hold talks with the rebels.

“The historical announcement of the HoR on May 18 is a constitution. Parliament is in favour of the Nepali people and it has carried people’s sentiments,” he said.

Nabindra Raj Joshi, chairman of the foundation, said: “The May 18 declaration has been brought to strengthen democracy. For its stability, the parties have to be active in

rural areas without fear of any kind.”
