Deuba making concerted efforts to regain reins of power

A A+ A-

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba, popular as a ‘shrewd player’ in Nepali politics, is making concerted efforts to regain the reins of power he lost on March 5.

The effort to create an alternative coalition was halted due to the split of the Janata Samajwadi Party (JSP-N) Nepal. However, Deuba is now working to rebuild his influence and return to power.

Deuba is fostering distrust among the ruling parties in a bid to bring the Nepali Congress back to power after being ousted from the government in a dramatic shift on March 5.

Despite being out of power politics, Deuba remains a formidable figure due to his diplomatic and strategic approach.

While the JSP and Unified Socialist Party were initially left out of the new ruling equation, Deuba is now maneuvering to gain the support of the Unified Socialist party and the Loktantrik Samajwadi Party (LSP).

After the Maoist Center and CPN-UML exited the government, Deuba aims to sustain the minority Madhesh provincial government with support from the Unified Socialist Party and LSP, thereby creating further instability among the ruling parties.

The withdrawal of support by UML and Maoist Center in Madhes has led the government of province, now led by JSP-N, into a minority.

Following the split in JSP Nepal, the federal coalition is seeking to establish a new government in Madhesh.
