Prime Minister’s responsibility is one, behavior is another: Nepali Congress 

Kathmandu. The main opposition party, the Nepali Congress, has called on Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli’s recent remarks have raised serious questions and demanded that the government and the CPN (Maoist) make public their institutional views on the issue. 

In a press release issued on Wednesday, the Nepali Congress expressed displeasure over the recent remarks and behavior of Prime Minister Oli and said that he had lost the moral and political basis for his rule. 

In today’s situation, it is unfortunate for the country that the responsibility of the Prime Minister is on one side and his behavior is on the other side. 

Stating that it is the duty of the opposition parties to ask public questions, the Congress has accused the Prime Minister’s remarks of failing to represent the country and the parties concerned.

 The statement said, “If Nepal does not represent the country and the parties concerned, is it the responsibility of the person holding the post of Prime Minister or the responsibility of the country?”

 Full excerpt of the press release made public by the Nepali Congress: – 

If the Prime Minister’s statement is not the opinion of the Government of Nepal and the CPN (Maoist), it further confirms that he has lost the moral and political basis to govern. 

In the recent scenario in the country, Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli’s remarks have raised some serious questions.

It is our duty to ask public questions on behalf of the opposition parties:

If the statements of the Prime Minister of the country do not represent the country of Nepal and the party concerned, is it the responsibility of the person holding the post of Prime Minister or the responsibility of the country? 

In today’s situation, it is unfortunate for the country that the responsibility of the Prime Minister is on one side and his behavior is on the other side.

(1) What is the responsibility of the Prime Minister of the country when many people have died in floods and landslides and what should happen? Just a statement of condolence?(2)

What is the responsibility of the Prime Minister of the country during the Corona epidemic to record the deaths of thousands and thousands of infected people but not to prepare for the war by making good use of time?

(3) What is the responsibility of the Prime Minister after the new map of the country is unanimously issued by the Parliament? Take serious diplomatic initiatives or use the map as a personal weapon in power politics? 

(4) Expressing controversial views on Ayodhya rather than taking serious diplomatic initiatives to establish land rights as per the map means that the Prime Minister is not serious about the seriousness of the issue. 

The post of Prime Minister cannot be a prisoner of personal whims beyond the country’s culture, constitution and sensitivities.

The constitution does not envisage an independent hegemony other than institutional responsibility.

Therefore, it is up to the CPN (Maoist) to change the thinking, style, expression and behavior of the Prime Minister completely or to change the Prime Minister himself. But two questions, is the statement of the Prime Minister of the country an institutional statement of the Government of Nepal or not? And is his party in line with the CPN (Maoist) faith? Institutional clarification has become mandatory. 

Expressing serious displeasure over the recent remarks and behavior of the Prime Minister on behalf of the Opposition Nepali Congress, I demand that the institutional views of the government and the CPN (Maoist) be made public.

 Jai Nepal!
