Kathmandu, July 13 (ANI): The Federal Alliance in Nepal has said on Wednesday that it will also help the Nepali Congress and Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Centre) to unseat the UML-led coalition government led by Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli. Alliance coordinator Upendra Yadav said his party and other constituents will not join the new government. "The base for working together with the new government will depend upon the way the Nepali Congress and Maoists will handle our demands," said Yadav. There are about four dozen lawmakers in the Federal Alliance, which is a coalition of many regional based Nepalese political parties that are demanding the identity based autonomy states in Nepal and the equal representation in Nepalese parliament. The Nepali Congress today extended its support to CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal in his bid to form a majority government after the Maoist centre withdrew its support from Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli led coalition government on Tuesday. (ANI)
