Nepal’s hardliners’ protest note to President

KATHMANDU: Protesting the major political parties’ decision to form the Chief Justice led government, the hardliner CPN-Maoist and other fringe political parties have submitted a protest note to President Dr Ram Baran Yadav on Wednesday.

They also said that the political agreement to make the sitting Chief Justice new Prime Minister was unconstitutional and nonpolitical.

The leaders of CPN-Maoist, CPN (Maoist), Revolutionary Communist Party of Nepal and other parties submitted the memorandum to President Dr Yadav saying that the idea was planted by the foreigners and this would displace the independence judiciary, thereby making the country a failed state.

They have demanded the President to form the new government under the leadership of the political figure by brushing aside the proposal of forming the government under the nonpolitical figure.

CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidhya, central member of CPN (Unified) Rishi Kattel, CPN (Maoist) Coordinator Matrika Yadav, General Secretary of Revolutionary Communist Party of Nepal, Kumar Lingden of Federal Democratic National Forum and Jyoti Danuwar of Social Democratic Party have signed the memorandum.
