KATHMANDU: The opposition alliance has asked all political party leaders and cadres, as well as civil societies, to speak out eloquently in support of the constitution and democracy.
The senior leaders of the opposition parties, including the Nepali Congress (NC), met today at NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba’s residence in Budhanilakantha and appealed to all State organs and agencies not to support any non-democratic and unconstitutional acts.
The alliance announced today in a joint press statement that the 149 members of the disbanded House of Representatives had already filed a writ case requesting the restoration of the parliament and claiming an alternative Prime Minister.
The coalition has also advised the existing administration not to do anything that would have a long-term impact on the country and its people at this critical juncture.
NC President Deuba, CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda,’ Janata Samajbadi Party Chairperson Upendra Yadav, Rashtriya Janamorcha Chairperson Durga Poudel, and leader Madhav Kumar Nepal all signed the declaration.
The alliance has accused the incumbent administration of breaching the constitution by submitting the budget for the upcoming fiscal year 2021/22 through an ordinance rather than federal parliament on Saturday.
The alliance accused the government of carrying out unlawful measures and activities while the country was reeling from the second wave of COVID-19.
The alliance has expressed confidence in the Supreme Court’s ability to uphold constitutional provisions and provide justice.
