The Maoist-Madhesi ruling coalition Wednesday appeared unfazed by the opposition parties' plan to dislodge the Baburam Bhattarai government through a no-trust vote.
A meeting of the top leaders of UCPN (Maoist) and the Madhesi Front held at the Maoist parliamentary party office in Singha Durbar decided to face the no-confidence motion if the opposition parties table it in the parliament.
The meeting also decided to give continuity to the Bhattarai-led government and also urged the Nepali Congress and the UML to join the government in order to turn it into national unity government.
"No-confidence motion will not go anywhere. They won't be able to garner majority," communication minister and acting chairman of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (Republican), Raj Kishor Yadav, said, adding, "To register a no-confidence motion at this stage is to try to derail the peace process and constitution."
Yadav also informed that the meeting of the ruling coalition decided to speed up the constitution-drafting process by taking the NC and the UML into confidence. nepalnews.com
