Country in conflict if no consensus within a week: KC
MANGALBARE, Ilam, Dec 27: Nepali Congress (NC) central member Arjun Narsingh KC has said that there is no alternative to go for fresh election by forming a national unity government under the NC leadership.
If consensus was not reached within a week, elections could not take place in coming April-May and then the country will slide into conflict, leader KC said this at a press meet organized by Nepal Press Union, Ilam, this morning.
He made it clear that the NC would not forge consensus on the reinstatement of CA, participation in the present government and substances of constitution.
´Congress will not go to the government by compromising the party ideals for power. However, government leadership from outside the ruling alliance could be discussed´, he further said, adding the Congress would not go back from its claim for government.
Leader KC also accused the Unified CPN (Maoist) of being responsible to bring the country to political and constitutional vacuum, commenting that the Maoist recent remark of building consensus on substances of constitution within four days is merely a tactic to extend its stay in the power.
He pointed out the need of forming national unity government under the NC leadership to hold free and fair election in the country.
KC ruled out any chance to join the incumbent government and warned that the Baburam Bhattarai-led government would be swept away through struggle.
Leader KC is set to inaugurate the general convention of Nepal Teachers´ Union, Ilam.
