Protest will backfire on Federal Alliance: Minister Rai

KATHMANDU, May 15: The government has termed the Singha Durbar-centric protest by the Federal Alliance meaningless.

Talking to Republica Online, Government’s Spokesperson and Minister for Information and Communications, Sherdhan Rai said that the agitation ‘sans participation of public is insignificant’.

Saying that the government amended the constitution to address demands of the agitating parties and formed a political mechanism to resolve grievances over demarcation of provinces, Minister Rai stressed that the government is for seeking solution through talks.

“The protest is meaningless,” he said, “The alliance is inflicting pain on people through the protest and it will backfire on them .”
