Khanal also trashed rumors that he is all set to become the new prime minister of the country.
Emerging from the standing committee meeting of the party held at its central office in Balkhu, he said PM Nepal, who is also a senior CPN-UML leader, had told the party leaders during the meeting today that he will step down in order to put an end to the deepening political crisis. The UML strongman reiterated the need for national consensus for peace and constitution.
Khanal hoped that PM Nepal's resignation will pave way for the formation of a national unity government and resolve all longstanding political deadlock ailing the country. Nepalnews.com
