He charged that they [Oli and Koirala] were longing for ‘Jungi standard’ after coming to power.

“The decision gatherings have dispensed with the “likelihood of agreements” independent from anyone else,” said Bhattarai. He said a way of agreement could be looked for if the decision gatherings surrender their stand of drafting the new constitution through procedure.

The former Prime Minister has blamed the ruling parties Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN-UML—of showing their egotism for the sake of drafting new constitution. Bhattarai warned that the ruling parties would be compelled to impart a destiny like that of previous King Gyanendra, if they forcefully issued the new constitution.

Bhattarai, who arrived here in Rolpa to head the dissent declared by the alliance of 30 opposition parties, charged that NC and UML have united and have been attempting to corner the UCPN (Maoist).

Terming Rolpa as the epicenter of People’s War, Bhattarai said the ruling parties have been given final proposal till February 28 to look for consensus.
