Kathmandu, May 15 (ANI): CPN (UML) Chairman Jhala Nath Khanal today stressed on the need of forming a national government forging consensus.

Speaking at a programme here, Khanal highlighted the need for consensus government at a time when other party leaders are busy in signature campaign for the formation of a new government under its own leadership.

He said there is no alternative but to move ahead with consensus for national goodwill.

Khanal’s remark has been publicised after the Madhesi Janadhikari Forum (MJF) decided to form a government under its own leadership.

MJF Chairman Upendra Yadav said his party is finding difficulty to support the new government under UML leadership as the latter has failed to give clear assurances on Madhes issues.

In a statement, the MJF party said it would take initiatives to gather support and solidarity from other parties for the formation of a new government under its leadership.

The statement further said that it would support the party of coalition agreeing to implement eight-point -demand signed with the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) on Madhes issues incase the party fails to garner much support for formation of the government.

Following the MJF decision, the attempt of the Nepali Congress and the UML alliance to form a new government is also facing uncertainty. (ANI)
