Shelters for quake survivors before mid-June: PM Oli

KATHMANDU — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli assured of bringing the quake survivors under the shelters by the second week of June.

In response to a memorandum submitted by a delegation of Nepali Congress (NC) parliamentarians here on Tuesday, PM Oli said the government was working vigorously for appropriate resettlement of the quake victims.

Stating that the reconstruction process was moving ahead as per the agreement to mobilise the support received from the donor agencies during the term of the preceding government, PM Oli said, “There should be a realistic approach and mutual support in connection to the reconstruction.”

Reminiscent of the offer made to him to become the Prime Minister during the time when none of the parties had won majority in the second Constituent Assembly (CA) election, the PM reminded that he had vouched for the idea that the government should be formed only with the support and advice of NC.

PM Oli said that he had taken the initiative in forming the NC-led government and that the government was a result of the gentleman’s agreement reached between NC and CPN-UML. PM said that he had never decried the NC-led government publicly.

The PM maintained that agreement and cooperation should be upheld no matter who was in the government leadership and added that the Constitution was democratic and could be amended as per necessity.

“I am serious towards the complaints on artificial shortage seen in the market,” PM Oli shared and underlined the government’s preparation for stringent measures to control it.

NC lawmaker, Dhanraj Gurung, presented the memorandum and accused the government of remaining apathetic towards the urgency to provide relief to the quake-stricken and for post-quake reconstruction.

“The government should have been able to work during this difficult situation, but it is happy with the words,” NC stated. The main opposition has demanded disbursement of the relief to the quake victims in packages rather than in installments.

It has suggested the government to adopt e-banking system to facilitate the distribution of relief and provide cost-free map approval scheme for those reconstructing their home.

KATHMANDU — The two parties of left alliance — CPN-UML and CPN Maoist Centre — have finally reached an agreement on unification and signed a seven point agreement on the modality of the unification on Monday evening.

A meeting of top leaders of the two parties at late Monday evening officially approved the ‘left unity’ deal agreeing, in principle, on party leadership, organization and ideology.

UML Chairman and Prime Minister (PM) KP Sharma Oli, Jhala Nath Khanal, Madhav Kumar Nepal, Bam Dev Gautam and Ishwor Pokharel have signed the agreement on behalf of UML whereas Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, senior leaders Narayan Kaji Shrestha and Ram Bahadur Thapa have signed the agreement on behalf of the Maoist Centre.

In a seven-point agreement signed by eight leaders, the two parties have agreed to form Communist Party of Nepal(CPN), a leftist party with Marxist-Leninist ideology as its guiding principle.

Likewise, as per the agreement, People’s Multiparty Democracy (‘Janata ko Bahudaliya Janawawd’ known as Ja-Ba-Ja as propagated by later UML leader Madan Bhandari) and Maoism will be deliberated upon as the ideological lines of the party at the general convention of the unified party.

UMl chair KP Sharma Oli and Maoist Center chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal will co-chair the party in a bi-chairman system until the general convention and that both will take turns in leading the government.

The agreement on parallel leadership will remain until the first general convention, while collective leadership model would be followed for other portfolios.

As per understanding reached between the two parties, Oli would head the government for the first three years, while Dahal would lead the government for the remaining two years.

According to the leaders present during the signing of the deal, the agreement was signed after interlocutors from the two sides hammered out a sketch deal on leadership, organization and ideology which would be given actual shape through a joint general convention in around a year and a half. However, the agreement on leadership and organization has not been disclosed in the written agreement.
