KATHMANDU – Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has asserted that the Supreme Court (SC) could not offset the debate which is being held in a way to incite violence.
At an event organized here today by the Madan Bhandari Foundation on the occasion of 70th birth anniversary of the late communist leader Madan Kumar Bhandari, PM Oli viewed that any activities inciting violence in the court should not be permitted. Oli questioned, “Why could not the Justices order the prudent advocates to put their arguments in a decent manner?”
The PM was refereeing to a remark of an advocate who was putting forth his points against the dissolution of the House of Representatives (HoR) at the hearing on the case relating to the dissolution of the House in the apex court.
The advocate had cited incidents of France and the UK and warned that there could be assassination of the President and the Prime Minister.
From today onward, debate of the government side on the dissolution of the HoR has kicked off with the Attorney General Ramesh Badal taking part in the pleading defending the government’s decision to dissolve the HoR for the second time on May 22.
PM Oli, also Chairperson of the CPN (UML), hit out at the Nepali Congress (NC) leaders saying that it went to tie up with CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ to forge an opposition alliance against the incumbent government.
He also took a jibe at CPN (UML) expelled leader Madhav Kumar Nepal who seems to be “enjoying’ to be a cadre of once-his-allay Prachanda.
The Head of the Government also opined that NC parliamentarian’s threat to seek an assassin like Nathuram Godse who had shot dead Mahatma Gandhi in India or to become Godse himself if could not find one was a result of influence of Prachanda’s ideologies.
