CPN (Maoist Centre) chairperson and former prime minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has clarified that he did not seek to be the Prime Minister or lay any claim on the position.

Speaking at a press conference organised by the Press Organisation Nepal, Sindhuli Chapter, on Thursday, leader Dahal reiterated that neither him nor his party had eyed the prime ministerial post. "Political consensus will decide who will be the next prime minister for which the political parties are currently holding discussions," shared Dahal assuring, "consensus would be forged soon."

Dahal expressed his displeasure over the conspiracies that he said were being hatched against democracy, inclusiveness, proportional system and the constitution.

Disapproving the working style of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, the former prime minister asserted that truth, justice and system always prevails at the end.

Underscoring broader unity among the communist parties, he viewed that all honest communist people should stand for unity among themselves.

Furthermore, he clarified that there will not be any reshuffling in the provincial government until there was any such rearrangement in the federal government.

On a different note, he said that President Bidya Devi Bhandari in a recently held all-party meeting had appraised the attendants about her impending visit to Bangladesh.

According to him, the Prime Minister, however, had hinted towards the dissolution of the House of Representatives yet again. "Such a remark from the PM is a matter of concern for the political parties."
