Minister for Health and Population Birodh Khatiwada said the incumbent coalition government would continue until next elections reasoning that it was formed to safeguard the constitution.
There was no meaning to call the government the one that was formed through mandamus order of the apex court since its formation followed the constitution, said Khatiwada, also a leader of the CPN (Unified Socialist), at a programme organised here by the Kaski Chapter of the party to exchange greetings on the occasion of upcoming festivals, Dashain, Tihar and Chhath.
“The incumbent government is not the one as rumoured. A majority of lawmakers reached to the President Office in line with the constitution. Majority lawmakers signed to form it just like the former government led by KP Sharma Oli.”
On another note, he claimed that they broke away from the CPN (UML) and formed the CPN (Unified Socialist) to save communist movements as UML Chair KP Sharma Oli demonstrated political digression and self-centered traits.
In the capacity of the health minister, he said that he would sit together with all the stakeholders to seek their suggestion towards equipping and operating the Western Regional Hospital in a more effective manner.
On the occasion, CPN (Unified Socialist) Gandaki Province in-charge Keshab Lal Shrestha urged party cadres to implement policies, programmes and action plans taken by party’s latest meeting at local level.
Also present in the event were Minister for Physical Infrastructure, Urban Development and Transport Management of Gandaki Province, Kumar Khadka, and Health Minister Madhu Adhikari, party leaders and cadres and people from various walks of life including industrialists. ---
