Attacks Against Party Won’t Be Tolerated: PM

Prime Minister and chairman of the ruling party CPN-UML KP Sharma Oli said on Monday that his party would not take power through the side door and challenged the opposition to topple the government through parliamentary process.
Addressing a national gathering of the Nepal Utpidit Jatiya Mukti Samaj, which is close to the party, in the capital today, Prime Minister Oli said that all the opposition parties had the same objective against UML.
He also said that Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda had caused a lot of pain to the citizens in the past and accused him of still trying to confuse the people.
Similarly, Prime Minister Oli said that the parallel activities going on in the name of the party could only be tolerated to a certain extent. “If Madhav Nepal seeks to return to the party and work then he should apologise not to me but to the people,” he said, adding, “Attacks on the party will not be accepted. A tigress only stays silent as long as her cub is not threatened. You are not the only ones who know how to expel individuals.”
Oli said that he had not reciprocated the Nepal faction’s move of expelling him from the party and had retained their membership to give them an opportunity to return to the UML.
Stating that the government had done an extraordinary job in the last three years, the Prime Minister mentioned that many development works had been carried out. “We are in a great campaign of nation-building and we must not let it falter,” he said.
The Prime Minister also stated that the communist movement had always raised voice against inequality and discrimination.
In the programme, Prime Minister Oli honoured leader and writer Modnath Prasrit for his contributions to raising public awareness against social discrimination.
