Kathmandu, October 9
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has requested the Madhesh-centric Rastriya Janata Party Nepal not to withdraw the support extended to the government.
After the Mahantha Thakur-led party warned of withdrawing the support, Oli hurriedly invited the leaders to his official residence in Baluwatar and pleaded for support last night, leaders who attended the meeting inform.
The leaders claimed that the Prime Minister looked weak during the meeting as he complained he could not perform as good as expected as multiples sides did not cooperated with him.
“When we complained that the government could not perform, he did not defend. He just listened to us. He did not have any zeal and energy,” a leader says.
Rather the Prime Minister complained himself, “I tried, but no one supported me. I want to develop the country, but have not been able to,” according to the leader.
Earlier, the RJPN had warned of withdrawing the support extended to the government as it has not met the party’s demands including constitution amendment.
The party says it has now served an ultimatum till Chhath festival, which is around one month away, to meet the demands.
