Prachanda says party’s jamboree & CJ have nothing to do with his recent proposal

Puspa Kamal Dahal "Prachanda"

KATHMANDU: UCPN Maoist Chairman Puspa Kamal Dahal has clarified that his recent proposal to form consensus government in the leadership of Chief Justice Khila Raj Regmi was not taken by the party’s general convention.

Prachanda further clarified that even the Chief Justice was not consulted before floating the proposal on the outset of party’s general convention in Hetaunda recently.

He made such revelations while holding consultations with President Dr Ram Baran Yadav on Saturday evening. During the meeting which was participated by senior leaders of major political parties, he said that he had forwarded the proposal as an alternative to resolve the ongoing political crisis, informed UML leader K P Oli.

Backing his proposal of forming independent figure led government, Prachanda said forming the government in the leadership of any former Chief Justice would be relevant if political parties don’t reach understanding in forming the consensus government in a political figure’s leadership.
