Six major political parties that are concerned about the present situation of the country are going to initiate actions to address the present situation of the country. The six parties submitted a memorandum to the government expressing their distrust and suspicion of the government's reluctance [to move on important matters] and irresponsibility.
This joint action of the six parties, which were all represented in the dissolved House of Representatives, was initiated by the CPN-UML about three weeks ago. After a meeting, the parties decided to jointly submit the memorandum to the prime minister. The parties are hopeful that their action will create pressure within the government to create a positive environment and eliminate any doubts regarding the November elections. The parties have alleged that the government is being indecisive about holding the elections, and has not initiated a discussion with other political parties.
The parties have also alleged that the government's attitude to the Maoist problems is irresponsible and dubious. They have appealed for considered and intent deliberations to handle the issues thrown up by the insurgency. It is expected that the joint action will help give direction to the derailed government, which has basically acted tenacious and obstinate. The parties have alleged that the attitude of the government has created confusion and disorientation among the people.
These were the conclusions reached at a meeting held at the residence of former prime minister and Rastriya Prajatantra Party leader Surya Bahadur Thapa on 23 September to demand that the government be more decisive about pressing issues and initiate actions to ensure security.
The parties have also agreed to form a coordination committee, on which will sit Subash Nemwang of the CPN-UML, Krishna Sitaula of Nepali Congress, Kamal Thapa of the RPP, Rajendra Mahato of the Sadbhawana Party, Nav Raj Subedi of the United People's Front, and Sunil Prajapati of the Nepal Peasant-Workers' Party.
