I am ready to become PM: Ashok Rai

SOLUKHUMBU: Federal Socialist Party Chairman Ashok Rai has that he was ready to be the Prime Minister if need be.

“I am ready to be the new prime minister if need be to give an outlet to the country’s political and constitutional crises.”

Rai said that CA revival was the best mantra to resolve the present political stalemate though holding fresh election was also a better option if all parties were ready for that.

Speaking at an interaction program organized by Reporters’ Club Nepal Solukhumbu chapter program, Rai said new prime minister should be selected from the revived house to give the constitutional wayout to the country.

He also claimed that the major three political parties were not capable of ending the ongoing deadlock. “Our party is ready to end the constitutional and political stalemate,” Rai claimed.

Rai also ruled out the possibility of formation of an NC-led government under its President Sushil Koirala.
