KATHMANDU — Main ruling coalition CPN Maoist Center on Tuesday announced that it has pulled back support from the CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli-led government, saying the UML was hesitant to implement the past agreements made with it.
The Party’s headquarter meet chose to pull back its support to Oli government today. A meeting of the CPN (Maoist Center) Headquarters held yesterday had approved Dahal to take the choice on whether to keep supporting the present government.
After the decision Party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal composed a letter addressing PM Oli about the party’s decision to withdraw support to the government.
Party leader Janardan Sharma and Hitaraj Panday reached PM’s residence Baluwatar with the letter.
In a letter submitted to Prime Minister Oli, Dahal has said that as the present government has showed no enthusiasm to implement the 9-point agreement signed between CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center) and the 3-point gentlemen’s agreement reached between Dahal and Oli, the support to the current government has been withdrawn.
With the decision, the party has also recalled the ministers representing the party in the current government.
The party had intensified internal as well as external parleys in recent days to push for a formation of a consensus government under the leadership of party Chairman Dahal.
