Sushil Koirala, the Prime Minister of Nepal, on 2 October announced in Parliament that he will be submitting his resignation to President Ram Baran Yadav. In a cabinet meeting, Koirala informed his cabinet colleagues that he will meet the Head of the State and ask him to initiate the process to form a new government as per Nepal’s Constitution, Minister Lal Babu Pandit told IANS. “I cordially request the Indian government to ensure Nepal ‘s right to transit and not to allow the creation of delay at the borders”, he said.
INDIA has been forced to deny accusations that its blockade of neighbouring Nepal is aimed at restoring that country’s overthrown monarchy.
The Nepal government has written to the Indian government that it was ready to provide security to Nepal-bound cargo and freight once they cross the border.
The agitating Madhesi Front claims that the Constitution does not guarantee enough rights and representation to the Madhesi and Tharu communities residing in southern Nepal.
“People have been suffering”.
Koirala, a Nepali Congress leader, was elected as the Prime Minister of Nepal on February 10, 2014.
KP Oli, who is tipped to be the next prime minister, yesterday said: “India should not impose undeclared blockade in the name of dissatisfaction expressed by a few political parties and some political leaders (on the new Constitution)”.
“I am concerned”, he said, “such strike and agitation should not affect our social fabric, strength of the nation and Nepal’s global relations”.
However, the appointment of Oli as the next Prime Minister might be a problem for India because of his apparent dismay towards India’s reaction to the adoption of constitution by Nepal.
It shouldn’t be clear within the structure whether or not the prime minister ought to resign or not to pave the best way for the formation of the brand new authorities.
The constitution requires that a new prime minister be elected from the Parliament within seven days of beginning of the first session of the House after commencement of the new charter.
