Ruling coalition is destined for failure: NC leader KC

A A+ A-

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress (NC) leader Arjun Narsingh KC forecasted the imminent breakdown of the newly formed power coalition due to internal discord.

Emphasizing the need for patience, he asserted that the Nepali Congress remains pivotal for any viable government formation.

KC said that the ruling coalition is destined for failure due to its inherent conflicts, and Nepali Congress must maintain patience.

Speaking to Khabarhub, KC elaborated, “We are witnessing conflicting narratives; hence, NC must adopt a wait-and-see approach.”

According to KC, rather than actively disrupting the alliance, its own internal strife will lead to its demise, necessitating Nepali Congress’s involvement in any subsequent government formation.

In a conversation with Khabarhub, KC clarified that Nepali Congress holds no personal animosity towards Home Minister Rabi Lamichane, highlighting the party’s focus on governance and procedural matters. Excerpts:

Nepali Congress demanded the resignation of Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane in the House of Representatives demanding the formation of a parliamentary probe committee. Why the apparent discord between NC and Rastriya Swatantra Party?

It wouldn’t be prudent to label it as discord. In a democratic setup, clashes of ideas, sometimes even personalities, are inevitable.

However, in this instance, challenges should be resolved through public debate rather than resorting to procedural matters.

The formation of a parliamentary committee, when public scrutiny demands it, should not instill fear within those in power; rather, it should be embraced as a means to uphold democratic principles.

This isn’t hostility. A nascent power, if grounded in democratic principles, can bolster democracy.
