Kathmandu, Jul 18 (ANI): The political leaders affiliated to the Madhesi Morcha, an alliance of various Madhesi-centric parties, have accused Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Centre) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal of favouring his desires over the welfare of others.

The Madhesi Morcha took a jibe at Dahal, saying he is a person who does not stick to his words and alleged he is skillful at altering his decisions repeatedly to favour his will, reports the Kathmandu Post.

Speaking at a function organised to mark the end of Sanghiya Gathabandhan's 16-day long relay hunger strike in Rajbiraj on Sunday, Sanghiya Samajbadi Forum Nepal Vice-Chair and former education minister Renu Kumari Yadav said Dahal is known for changing his words to suit his desires.

Dahal had reached Khullamanch in Kathmandu on Saturday to express solidarity with the Gathabandhan's leaders, who were staging relay hunger strike in protest of the Constitution.

Yadav said it depends on Dahal whether his solidarity to our protest was just a show-off or he is truly positive with the demands of Madhesi, Adivasi and Janajati.

Similarly, Sadbhawana Party vice-chairman Mrigendra Kumar Singh remarked it is to be seen in the future as to how Dahal will play his role in addressing Madhesis grievances in the changed political context.

After toppling the incumbent government led by Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli, the Maoist Centre and Nepali Congress seek to form a new government led by Dahal.

Madhesis had earlier accused the Oli-led government of ignoring their demands and depriving them of their rights. (ANI)
