Turn-wise deal on premiership detrimental for country: Nepal

Rautahat, February 19

Senior CPN-UML leader and former prime minister Madhav Kumar Nepal today said that the provision of heading the government turn-wise would do no good to the country.

Speaking to journalists at his residence in Gaur Municipality-2 in Rautahat today, the UML leader said, “I personally don’t know about any deal between our chairperson and the CPN-Maoist Centre head on the two of them leading the government for three and two years respectively. If there is any such deal between them, then I must say that it is unfortunate as it won’t do any good to the country.”

“At a time when both the parties are in the process of becoming one through the unification process, I don’t understand the rationale behind the deal to head the government turn-wise,” he observed, adding that he was not quite against creating two deputy chair posts in the party if that was required.

On a different note, leader Nepal expressed confidence that the country would take leaps in development once the government formation was completed.
