    Weekly interview with Shekhar Koirala

While Nepali Congress and CPN-UML government has been a terrible failure in vital issues, including appointing 26 members and giving full shape to CA and heads in various constitutional bodies even after seven months, coalition partners are exchanging war of words. UML accuses Congress of ignoring seven-point deal and endorsing President and Vice-President through the Parliament. A section of Nepali Congress says the issue has lost relevance.

Some like Central Working Committee member Dr Shekhar Koirala has suggested UML might as well walk away if it is not satisfied with government functioning. What is cooking up between the two parties? How will NC-UML relation go ahead in the coming days? Mahabir Paudyal and Kosh Raj Koirala caught up with Dr Koirala Wednesday afternoon at NC’s Parliamentary Party Office, Singha Durbar.

The guests can take back nothing except the memories and I want them to take home the everlasting memories at our hotel by providing them better service.

Not only that, Modi is equally concerned about the development of neighboring countries. We have great expectations from his visit.
