Opposition protests will bring govt to its knees: Deuba
Senior leader of Nepali Congress (NC) Sher Bahadur Deuba on Wednesday claimed that the nationwide mass protests being waged by the opposition parties including NC will certainly bring down the current Bhattarai-led government.
“The mass protest rally being organised by the opposition parties including Nepali Congress would soon bring the Bhattarai-led government to its knees,” NC leader Deuba, who is also a former prime minister, said.
Deuba, who was speaking at a press meet organised by Nepal Press Union in Dhankuta this afternoon, also claimed that the first phase of the nationwide protests waged by the opposition parties has received widespread public participation and support, marking the beginning of an end of the UCPN (M)-led government.
He, however, assured that the mass protest waged by the opposition parties would remain “peaceful”, although its nature and scope may change to achieve the desired results.
Leader Deuba said that the mass protest by the opposition parties will be successful under any circumstances as it has the good will and support of the people.
Similarly, saying that there can be no other alternative to a national consensus government led by NC president Sushil Koirala, Deuba made it clear that the opposition parties would neither accept nor tolerate the continuation of the current UCPN (M) led government or a formation of a new one. nepalnews.com
