Kathmandu, March 11
Rastriya Janata Party, which has been demanding that the constitution be amended to meet Madhesh-based parties’ demands, says it will support the Oli government, but it won’t join the Cabinet until the constitution is amended.
Speaking in Parliament on Sunday, Yadav, who is also a member of the party’s presidium, said that his party was ready to work with the new government. Yadav urged the Prime Minister to commit to amending the constitution. “We have faith in the Prime Minister, we won’t sign any agreement,” he added.
Yadav urged the Prime Minister to convene an all-party meeting so that all parties that support Oli can form a common stance on pertinent issues. “The RJP will vote in favour of Oli, but well not join the Cabinet. We’ll think about it when issues such as constitution amendment are resolved,” Yadav said.
