Kathmandu, May 8
Nepali Congress leader Shekhar Koirala has accused the ruling Nepal Communist Party of attempting to capture state power.
Opening the party’s national awareness campaign in Dhulikhel of Kavre district on Wednesday, he said the government’s activities since it took over power last year gave similar signals.
Koirala recalled Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara’s no objection to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s speech despite the opposition’s protest in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, he accused the government of trying to centralise power.
“The executive and the legislative have already become a single unit. The judiciary is much similar.”
He also criticised the government for its attempt to bring departs of revenue investigation and money laundering investigation under the Office of the Prime Minister.
In another context, he said the Nepal Army should be left free from infrastructure development projects.
