Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Monday announced resignation from his post in the wake of new political developments after President Ram Baran Yadav vetoed the government's decision to sack army chief Rookmangud Katawal.
Dahal made this announcement in his address to the nation this afternoon.
Describing President Yadav's move as unconstitutional, Dahal said it has dealt serious blow to democracy, peace process and the newly established republican order and asked him to rectify his decision.
Saying that a constitutional President has no right to block the decisions of an elected government, Dahal also accused him of acting under provocation of some parties.
Democracy and Class Struggle says the real struggle now begins - the concerted media blitz against the Maoist led government of the last few weeks in Nepal and the wider world is the last hurrah of those military feudal elitists and their proxy parties - the one voice that counts and matters is the voice of the people and not the elites of Nepal and that voice of the Nepali working people will not be silenced by elite games - prepare to hear the roar that will roll back the feudalists amd militarists for ever.
