Kathmandu, August 7
It has been around five months since the main opposition Nepali Congress decided to form a ‘shadow cabinet’ to track activities of the Nepal Communist Party-led government and put pressure on the elected government against wrong decisions. The decision, however, is yet to be implemented.
The party’s spokesperson, Bishwa Prakash Sharma, says his party is yet to execute the decision as it has not distributed responsibilities among leaders in the party.
“We are holding informal discussions and it will conclude soon.”
Nevertheless, he tries to claim that the ‘shadow cabinet’ is already functioning as it should not be formally announced.
“The shadow cabinet never gets formed formally,” he tells Onlinekhabar, “It is just about assigning responsibilities to the leaders internally.”
Sharma says the party will form such shadow governments at local and provincial levels too.
Meanwhile, multiple sources in the party says Deuba is planning to take the lead in shadow cabinet and distributing responsibilities among factions led by himself, Ram Chandra Paudel and Krishna Prasad Sitaula.
