CPN Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has tabled a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli in the Parliament meeting this evening.

Terming  politic as a ‘game of possibility, Mr. Dahal said the time compelled him to stand against Prime Minister Oli acccusing him of betraying a “gentlemen’s agreement” sealed with him, leading to recent developments.

He elaborated that there were differences in terms of definition of national unity, national independence and nationality between him and Oli.

The government tried to provoke a particular community and irritating various groups including the coalition partners themselves, instead of promoting national unity, Dahal charged.

Meanwhile, Dahal urged PM Oli to take the government change game as a natural process, as parties want to control power in the parliamentary democratic system.

He reiterated that he had reminded PM Oli of the need of national consensus to solve current political problems the nation is facing including implementation of the Constitution and addressing demands raised by Madhesi parties.

The House would discuss the motion for three days, according to Speaker Onsari Gharti.
