KATHMANDU — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said that the incumbent government was not designed by external forces, but formed through a democratic process.
The government is lighthearted and strong, PM Oli said while addressing the Parliament on Thursday. Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli also rubbished the rumors that the House is being dissolved.
He said that he would not stand against democratic exercise.
In his televised address, the Prime Minister said he was ready to accept criticisms against the government as drifted in the Parliament meetings for last couple of days as warnings against him.
However, Oli cleared up that he was not for dissolving the Parliament to avoid criticisms and risks lying in front of him and the government maintaining that he was ready to quit on the day he lost the hold of majority in the Parliament.
“Today also, we need consensus. Let us maintain the national consensus and change the government,” Oli said.
“Neither me, nor my party will obstruct the national consensus,” Oli said, adding the consensus should be forged on the basis of national interests.
Apparently alluding to Nepali Congress, Oli said he was always for consensus, but some other political parties deviated from consensus and remained stubborn toward moving ahead.Follow @gorkhapost
