'National consensus materialises after budget endorsement'
Pokhara, June 6: Chairman of the CPN Maoist Centre Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda has said the national consensus shall materialise with the passage of the budget.
Addressing a press meet organised by the Press Centre Nepal, Kaski in Pokhara today, leader Dahal argued that national consensus was required for the implementation of the constitution, resolution of the existing problems and propelling the post-earthquake reconstruction among other issues.
He stated that an understanding was also reached with the CPN (UML) for forming a national consensus government after the government's policies and programmes and the budget were passed by the parliament.
Stating that all know that a nine-point agreement had been reached between the CPN (UML) and the then UCPN (Maoist) and the issue of government change was also intuited in that which is the matter of public talk now, he said the gentleman's agreement is implemented through mutual understanding.
"A gentleman agreement is reached between 'gentlemen' and Iam a gentleman in that regard. It is my belief that KP ji (Prime Minister KP Oli) will also be so," he said.
Stating that he was not in a hurry to become the prime minister of a majority government, the CPN Maoist Centre chairman said that the person on whose name the national consensus is forged would lead the government.
Chairman Prachanda also stated that the constitution implementation was challenging and therefore national consensus was required for addressing the Madhe movement and other pressing issues.
He claimed that his party would be stronger with the unity among the different Maoist parties.
The former prime minister asserted that he was in favour of national consensus before, is for the same now and will remain so in future too.
Press Centre Nepal, Kaski president Deepak Pariyar chaired the press meet.
