Kathmandu, 31May: When things have moved well in the ruling Nepal Communist Party, its co-chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias Prachanda has become restless. His impatience is well exhibited as he refers to an agreement reached between his comrades Khagda Oli relating to sharing of tenure the topmost executives.
According to Kantipur daily, given that the party received a five-year term last elections, government leadership should’ve been divided equally between Oli and Dahal at two-and-a-half years each. Oli has already been in office for 15 months, and if the agreement is abided by, he only has 15 more months to go.
Referring to the agreement Dahal said that nobody would be spared, not even himself, if the agreement is violated.
It is worth mentioning that Dahal, a two-time PM, has had a bitter experience regarding power-sharing with Oli. In 2016, Oli had refused to hand over the reins to Dahal, despite a gentleman’s agreement. After 15 months, Oli may repeat the same thereby shattering his dream of becoming the Prime Minister.
