NEPALGUNJ — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said that a national consensus government was essential for the welfare of the country.
Talking to media persons at Nepalgunj Airport on Tuesday, Oli claimed that preparations were afoot to form a national consensus government instead of dissolving the incumbent government.
“Discussions are underway with all the political parties for consensus. The incumbent government should be allowed to function until the next parliamentary elections,” he said.
He also said that national consensus government was a must for proper implementation of the Constitution.
“It will be easier to implement the Constitution once national consensus government is formed. So we have emphasised on the formation of national consensus government.”
The PM further said it was natural and a democratic practice for oppositions to criticise the government.
Oli was on his way to Surkhet to take part in the meeting of Mid-Western University’s Senate in Birendranagar.
