Kathmandu, July 15 (ANI): The Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Centre) on Friday decided to block three major bills related to the annual budget announcement at the Parliament until the House voted on a 'no-confidence motion' filed against present Prime Minister K. P. Sharma Oli-led government. The Maoist Centre had earlier filed a 'no-confidence motion' against Prime Minister Oli after withdrawing its support from the Union Government post which the ruling party is now a minority in the Parliament. Meanwhile, the CPN Maoist Centre is also holding its Central Office meeting to discuss contemporary political issues including formation of a new government under its leadership, reports the Himalayan Times. According to the party sources, the meeting would discuss taking other fringe parties into confidence to endorse its 'no-confidence motion' against Prime Minister Oli and government formation in alliance with the Nepali Congress, among other issues. The meeting is taking place at the party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal's residence in Lazimpat. (ANI)
