Karna demands resignation of PM Oli

Kathmandu, April 07: Sadbhawana Party Co-Chairman Laxman Lal Karna said that the KP Sharma Oli-led government had so far been fully unsuccessful and hence demanded resignation of Oli at the earliest.

Speaking at a programme organised by the Reporters’ Club in the Capital on Thursday, he said, “This government has not done anything new yet, besides giving trouble to people.”

Speaking at the program presided by Reporters’ Club Nepal’s Chairman Rishi Dhamala, leader Karna warned that a stern protest would be launched from mid-April if the government did not address the demands of Madhes by that time. “We had given ultimatum till mid-April to address the demands, but the government has not taken any initiative till now,” Karna said.

“The Oli-led government itself is indulging in corruption and black marketing as the people are not getting fuel and cooking easily, even when there is no obstruction at border entry points,” he said. Moreover, he said that the next phase of agitation would be capital-centric.
