ILAM, Oct 6: Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Bijaya Kumar Gachchhadar on Saturday said that the political parties´ greed for power is prolonging the current political deadlock.
Talking to media persons at Kanyam, Gachchhadar, who is also the Chairman of Madhesi People´s Rights Forum-Democratic (MPRF-D), stated that they would support the party that will succeed in taking all the other parties into confidence.
He said the Madhesi parties should be allowed to lead the new government if the major three political parties -- UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress and CPN-UML-- fail to forge consensus on government´s leadership.
Stating that the issue of who would lead next government has complicated the present political situation, Gachcchadar stressed on the need for consensus among political parties to end the current deadlock.
