Acting president of the Nepali Congress Sushil Koirala has blamed the Maoists of their resistive stand on demands that brought deadlock in the political process.
Speaking at the national gathering of the Nepal Press Union on Friday, Koirala said his party now has no inch to go ahead for consensus on the issues raised by the communist parties.
Koirala also blamed Maoists for the failure of holding the CA polls for the second time in pretext of Nepali Congress not agreeing with republic and their other agendas. He said his party was not an obstacle to establishing republic.
Expressing concern over the increasing attacks and intimidation of journalists, Koirala appraised that journalists are the first pillars to institutionalising democracy.
Speaking at the same programme, President of the Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ) Bishnu Nisthuri urged the journalists for unity for security. He flayed the government for failure to bring those involved in targeting journalists to book.
