Opposition performance demanding PM resignation is unparliamentary: Ruling Alliance

Kathmandu, 06 July: The ruling coalition has said demanding Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s resignation is both undemocratic and unparliamentary. 

A meeting of the ruling alliance that took place at PM residence today concluded that the opposition demand for PM Dahal’s resignation was unparliamentary and therefore not acceptable. 

The CPN-UML, on Wednesday, had asked for the resignation of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ following his admission that Pritam Singh, an Indian transporter living in Nepal for decades, lobbied in Delhi to make him the Prime Minister of Nepal. 

UML, Rashtriya Swatantra Party and the Rastriya Prajatantra Party had stalled proceedings of both houses demanding resignation of Dahal as PM.

The meeting, held to discuss on this front, decided that PM Dahal should not resign and it is not appropriate to demand the resignation, said Rajendra Pandey, leader of CPN (Unified Socialist).
