KATHMANDU, Jan 14: CPN-UML Vice-Chairman Bhim Rawal has said that Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba should resign if he cannot name province capitals and chiefs.
The government is yet to announce the names of province chiefs and temporary province capitals even after a month of conclusion of federal and provincial elections.
“If the government cannot do its work, why is it staying? We have already got majority in elections. If PM Deuba cannot do it, he should step down and let us do it,” Rawal told Reporters’ Club Nepal on Sunday.
“The date for the National Assembly election has already been announced. Therefore, Deuba’s resignation will make no difference.”
“Otherwise, the PM should fix the temporary province capitals, province chiefs and the places from where the province assembly can function,” added Rawal.
He also warned Nepali Congress not to try to tempt CPN (Maoist Center) Pushpa Kamal Dahal by offering him the post of Prime Minister and added, “Dahal is not the one to be tempted.”
“UML and Maoist Center will merger very soon. As soon as Chair Oli returns from Bangkok, the unity process will gain momentum,” he added.
