UML to play role of effective opposition: Poudel
CPN (UML) vice-chair Bishnu Prasad Poudel has said the party will play an effective role as an opposition in the post-election government.
Talking to journalists in Butwal today, he said, “Though the party is the largest party in terms of the voters’ choice, we are the second party in the parliament and will not participate in the government to be formed ahead.”
According to him, the party has so far discussed with none in regard with the formation of a new government as it lacks the majority. Stating the government would not be of any specific party, the leader, as the HoR member-elect from the Rupandehi-2, assured voters that the party’s decision not to join the government would have no impact in the development of Rupandehi.
