KATHMANDU: Former Prime Minister and CPN-UML Chairperson KP Oli has indicated the possibility of early election in the country.
Addressing a greetings exchange program organized in Birtamod of Jhapa district Thursday on the occasion of Dashain, Deepawali, Chhath and Nepal Sambat festivals, he said, “The Council of Ministers has got full shape with difficulty almost three months after the formation of the government. This clearly indicates the way the government is operating.” The leader of the main opposition party in parliament, Oli, said that there is possibility of early election being held.
He claimed that the government under his leadership had carried out promising works in terms of development and construction. Stating that democracy has been established to bring visible change in the people’s life, the UML Chair called on the party rank and file to blunt what he called the propaganda and ‘falsehood’ about the UML spread by those who carried out activities to undermine democracy in the name of democracy.
He said that festivals like Dashain, Tihar and Chhath worked as the string in a garland by tying the society together in the bond of unity and goodwill. The former Prime Minister wished that may the festivals give us the good sense to translate democracy in our habit and lifestyle.
Province 1 Chief Minister Bhim Acharya, Provincial Minister for Land Management, Agriculture and Cooperative Hira Thapa, UML province committee secretary Binod Dhakal, lawmaker Komal Oli, among others also extended the festival greetings.
