CPN-UML Deputy parliamentary party leader Subas Chandra Nembang today said that his party would launch protest from both the Parliament and the street as a responsible opposition.

Nembang accused Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota of being biased against the CPN-UML. He flayed Sapkota for not putting up the notice that said 14 UML lawmakers sent by his party had been removed from the Parliament.

Addressing his party's gathering at Gaighat of Udayapur, Nembang argued that the incumbent government formed through the unholy alliance of parties was useless and ineffective. He expressed confidence that the alliance would collapse. On a different note, Nembang predicted that the newly-established CPN (Unified Socialist) party led by Madhav Kumar Nepal would meet the same fate as the CPN- ML that was formed after splitting the UML in the past. He claimed that all leaders and party cadres who had sided with Nepal would return to the mother party soon.

Defending his political master KP Sharma Oli, Nembang argued that the party's leaders had not brought out the good work done by Oli during his tenure. He extolled Oli for bringing CK Raut and Netra Bikram Chand to mainstream politics.
