Prime Minister Oli stresses unity among political parties

BANEPA: Prime Minister and CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli has urged all political parties to move ahead forging consensus.

Inaugurating his party's Kavreplanchok chapter's 9th District Assembly at Banepa, on Saturday, Oli said, "Let's move ahead united as the country is going through a tough time following the April 25 earthquake. Furthermore, the recent border blockade on Nepal has also thrown public lives out of gear."

The Prime Minister claimed that the Constitution has granted ample rights to one and all communities of the country.

He was of the opinion that although most of the political parties were together in the constitution-making process, few parties later grew to be disgruntled.

Moreover, the Prime Minister spoke of the upgrade of the Kodari Highway and development and promotion of solar energy and generating electricity from wind.

Also speaking at the programme, Minister for Tourism and Civil Aviation Ananda Prasad Pokharel asserted that the government was committed to resolving the Tarai crisis through talks.

He further said that the government has prioritised the implementation of Constitution featuring federal and republic setup.

Parliamentarian Bidur Sapkota appealed to the government to declare Kavrepalanchok as the capital of new province.

A total of 1,100 UML cadres are participating in the gathering that will last for two days. It will elect a new leadership in the district.
