Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — The CPN Maoist Center has decided to file a no confidence motion against the government at the Parliament meeting on Wednesday after prime minister Oli decided to face parliament.

CPN Moist Center, one of the main ruling coalition partners of the government, had withdrawn support from the CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli-led coalition government on Tuesday claiming that the Prime Minister’s party had failed to implement the past agreements made with it.

According to CPN Maoist Center spokesperson Pampha Bhusal, the party would file a no confidence motion against the government if the Prime Minister did not step down himself.

After the Maoist withdrawal, the coalition government was pushed to a minority.

According to the provision, the Prime Minister would be relieved from his post if he resigned or if no confidence motion is passed by a majority of the total existing members of the Parliament.

UDMF not to join new govt

After the new political development in the country, the Mades based parties have said that they would not join the new government at this time.

It will need the support of at least 298 members of the existing 595 members of the Parliament to form a new government and UDMF can play a vital role to make majority.

The combined strength of NC and CPN-MC is now 289 as NC has 207 members and CPN-MC has 82 members. They will need at least nine more members to form the new government.

Sadbhawana Party leader Laxman Lal Karna said the UDMF would not join the government until its demands were addressed.

Man divorces wife just 15 minutes after Islamic marriage in Dubai

A man in Dubai divorced his bride just 15 minutes after their Islamic marriage as he felt ‘insulted’ by her father’s bride price demands.

The man agreed to pay his new father-in-law Dh100,000 for their wedding but the older man became impatient to get the cash, DailyMail reported.

According to Gulf News, family members and friends accompanied the couple to a Sharia judge’s office to witness the marriage contract being signed. The groom then gave Dh 50,000 on the spot as agreed, with the rest to come after the party left the court building, according to Gulf News.

But, the bride’s father demanded the remaining cash as soon as the signing was over, even though the groom didn’t have it on him.

He said it would only take five minutes to walk to his car, which was parked outside, and get the rest of the bride price.

Instead of letting him retrieve it, the father insisted him to pay either right then or send a friend or relative to get the money while he stayed inside.

The groom felt insulted and demeaned by the series of demands and called off the marriage immediately, a lawyer handling the case said.

‘He told the bride’s father that he did not want his daughter as his wife and divorced her in less than 15 minutes from signing the marriage contract,’ he said.
