Janakpur, August 25
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health Upender Yadav is put under pressure by his party leaders to leave the government. As the central committee chairperson of Samajwadi Party, Yadav is also under pressure to merge with the Rastriya Janata Party Nepal.
Yadav, who had joined the KP Sharma Oli government upon the promise of a constitutional amendment, has been showing dissatisfaction towards the government as Oli failed to keep the promise. However, recently, he has been pressurised by his own party leaders to leave the central government.
“One and a half years have passed; still there hasn’t been any progress. Chairman Yadav needs to look at the things. The promises made to him by the Oli government and the promises made by him to the people of Mades have not been fulfilled,” states a Samajwadi Party leader in Janakpur, Bishnu Dev Sah. Sah adds that Yadav and many leaders within the party are not happy with the current government and want to withdraw their support.
“The sooner we leave this incumbent government, the better it is for our party,” says Sah. He added that his party only joined the government so that there would be a two-thirds majority. “One had to have a two-thirds majority if we were to amend the constitution,” he added.
