Present government is aligned to India, they blamed, adding that all unequal agreements must be scrapped, and the state restructured based on multiple identities.
On the occasion, Chairman of Rastriya Jana Morcha, Chitra Bahadur KC said the government was ruling the country through ordinances and trying to split the country in collusion with the Madhes centric parties.
General Secretary of CPN-ML CP Mainali said the recent activities of the government were weakening our nationality and independence. National consensus government is a must at present, he underscored.
Similarly, Chairman of Chure Bhavar Rastriya Party Keshav Mainali said the government was draining out the exchequer. So, the nationalist and democratic forces need to unite against this ill effort of the government, he stressed.
Chairman of CPN (United Marxist) Lok Narayan Subedi said the present government must be denuded for it was exercising the politics of hatred.
The government was exhibiting an authoritarian character, other leaders said speaking at the programme.
