Top leaders of CPN-UML have said that it was their party’s fault to agree for an ‘unwritten’ deal with Nepali Congress about allocating the Home Ministry to the UML.
“We committed a blunder by not signing a clear written deal with the NC,” said CPN-UML Secretary Yubraj Gyawali while speaking at a program in Kathmandu Wednesday.
“In addition, it was NC’s irresponsible behavior not to implement the gentlemen’s agreement reached between the two parties,” he said.
Stressing that there is no alternative for the two largest parties than to join hands to enact a new constitution in one year, Gyawali further said his party will not quit the claim for the Home Ministry.
Meanwhile, addressing a program in Rautahat, UML Senior Leader Madhav Kumar Nepal said that his party will not join the government until it gets a respectable participation.
“The dream of NC to have UML as the coalition partner is not going to be fulfilled through fraud and deceit,” Nepal said. “For this to happen, the NC has to be flexible for co-work and cooperation,” he added.
