Nepalese opposition leader Girija Prasad Koirala has asked Prime Minister Prachanda to run the Government with consensus of all the stakeholders and said his talks with Indian leaders revolved around this and dismissed reports that he has sought New Delhi’s help to oust the Maoists-led ministry.

The former premier also refuted allegations that he along with former King Gyanendra want to revive monarchy in Nepal by installing latter’s grand son Hridayendra on the throne.

“Neither I had any intention to topple the Government, nor did I have any plan to meet ex-King Gyanendra in India," Koirala told reporters at Tribhuvan International Airport on Sunday after his arrival.

Pointing out that during the meetings with Indian leaders both the sides agreed that there should be political stability in Nepal and a new constitution should be promulgated in time, Koirala said that “this is possible only when the Government takes the confidence of all the stakeholders.”

“It is our responsibility to solve problems at home,” the former premier added.
