KATHMANDU: UML Chairperson KP Oli has said that both the sudden introduction and withdrawal of the ordinance relating to the political parties has proved that the ordinance was meant only to split the CPN-UML.
Issuing a statement on Tuesday, the UML Chair has accused the government of working ill-intently and promoting lawlessness and corruption.
“The way the ordinance on political parties was issued by the government on August 18 and its withdrawal on September 27 proves that the ordinance was ill-intent and was against UML,” Oli’s statement said.
He argued that the ordinance should have been withdrawal after discussion in the parliament as the parliament was in operation of late.
In the meantime, the former Prime Minister complained the same in a meeting with Minister for Law, Parliamentary and Justice Affairs Gyanendra Bahadur Karki on Tuesday morning.
“The ordinance was issued by the government in an unconstitutional, conspiratorial and dishonest manner,” the source quoted Oli’s remark at the meeting with Minister Karki.
Minister Karki had been to meet UML Chair Oli to ease the uneven relations between Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and the opposition party leader.
