Kathmandu, July 12 (ANI): Maoist Chairman Puspa Kamal Dahal alias ”Prachanda” has warned that Nepal could head towards disintegration if it does not stick to the path of consensus politics to prevent such an upheaval.
Speaking to reporters here on Friday, Prachanda said, “Political parties should work together until the new constitution is written, otherwise the country could head towards disintegration”.
“The post of president and chairman of Constituent Assembly should not become a component of power sharing,” he said added that, “Power sharing means sharing of ministerial posts.”
He also expressed dissatisfaction over the remarks made by leaders of the Madhes-based parties in the Constituent Assembly (CA).
Meanwhile, the Vice President of Nepali Congress (NC) and the Minister for Peace and Reconstruction Ram Chandra Poudel said that the Nepali Congress should be given the second choice in power sharing, as it was the second largest party in the Constituent Assembly.
Poudel called for unity between the democratic and leftist forces to steer Nepal out of the current crisis, Nepalnews reported. (ANI)
