Kathmandu [Nepal], Mar 10 (ANI): The disgruntled Madhesh-based party Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal (RJP-N) on Sunday informed the House of Representative that it is no longer in support of the government under the leadership of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.
Lawmakers of the RJP-N party stood as a gesture of protest and demanded time after which the House Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara allocated time for RJP-N leader Mahendra Raya Yadav to speak.
“The government couldn’t address our demands. There was no communication and didn’t want to have a conversation despite our support. If there is a condition of conflict in the nation, then the government would be responsible for it. So, we hereby inform the government through House Speaker that we have formally withdrawn our support to the government,” RJP-N leader Mahendra Raya Yadav said.
On March 6, the RJP-N had made the announcement of the withdrawal of their support given to the Nepal government under the leadership of KP Sharma Oli. (ANI)
