Maoist-Madhesi govt's exit is only condition for consensus: Khanal
UML chairman Jhala Nath Khanal has reiterated that there will be no consensus until the Maoist-Madhesi government steps down.
"A new government based on consensus is the bottom line of the UML, Nepali Congress and other opposition parties. No consensus is going to evolve without this government's exit," he said while speaking at a programme organised at UML headquarters, Balkhu, on Monday.
He also argued that since the Maoists are afraid of elections conducting the elections under their leadership is out of question.
Opposition parties have not intensified their anti-government protests for the sake of consensus, but they are prepared to create a "storm of protest" if the ruling coalition refuses to make way for a unity government, Khanal said. nepalnews.com
