There will be no change in power equation, government will last its 5-year term: PM Dahal


KATHMANDU –  Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said that there will be no change in the existing power equation.

Addressing a meeting of the CPN (Maoist Centre)’s Parliamentary Party in Singha Durbar today, he urged one and all not to cast doubts and presumptions over the political meetings of the leaders of the parties in the ruling coalition.

“The government will not be affected at all. The incumbent power equation and government will be continued ahead,” PM Dahal said, responding to the questions the lawmakers put over Madhav Kumar Nepal, the Chair of the CPN (Unified Socialist) which is a part of the present ruling coalition, attending a meeting of the opposition parties including the main opposition Nepali Congress.

According to Hitraj Pandey, Chief Whip of the Maoist Centre, in this connection, the Prime Minister shared in the meeting that he had also met with former Prime minister and main opposition party president Sher Bahadur Deuba some days back and political parties’ leaders meeting each other does not make any difference to the ruling coalition.
Prime Minister Dahal said that the budget has been presented in the Parliament according to the people’s expectations and the party’s plan by forging consensus amidst much uncertainty and directed the MPs to present themselves effectively in the discussion on the budget.

“Agriculture has been given top priority in the budget and the budget is balanced according to timeliness and the state of the country’s economy. The budget should be implemented, everyone’s support is expected in this,” Chief Whip Pandey said, quoting Prime Minister Dahal’s statement in the meeting.

In the meeting, the leader of the Maoist Parliamentary Party and Prime Minister Dahal said that the discussions on the budget and the important bills in the parliament will be carried forward together from next Sunday.

Finance Minister Barsha Man Pun informed the meeting about the main contents of the budget. He made it clear that the budget includes the suggestions given by the party and the aspirations of the people. Twelve lawmakers commented on the budget in the meeting.
