Incumbent government as disgraced as Lokman: Oli
CPN (UML) Chairman and former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli today termed the incumbent government as bearing resemblance to sacked Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) Chief, Lokman Singh Karki.
He said the formation of the government under an unholy alliance between Maoist Center and Congress was wrong due to which the citizens were facing problems.
Speaking at a press meet organized by Press Chautari, Jhapa, Oli claimed that the government will not be able to work in the interest of the country.
Stating that the government should first hold elections before implementing the constitution, he claimed of a serious conspiracy being hatched to push the country into confrontation.
The UML Chief was of the opinion that the amendment bill was being introduced against the interest of the country and people, and in the interest of Madhesi leaders.
Oli noted that former King Gyanendra Shah's statement on Tuesday was made in the capacity of the country's citizen rather than from a royal status. RSS

Calling for a Public Debate on CSOs
The solution suggested by many, i.e. delegitimizing and killing off NGOs through regulatory mechanisms, harks back to the days of the Partyless Panchayat System, when the right to organize and associate freely was overridden by the state’s preoccupation with control, coordination, and uniformity.

Ideologies on T-shirts
In my opinion, Buddha was a great revolutionary, as was Einstein. Anything that challenges the present way of thinking about life is a revolution. In student politics, when it comes to revolution, the only blood I want to imagine being used is that flows into your brain and comes out energized with new ideas with every heartbeat.
