A week after they joined hands to give the constituent assembly a fresh lease of life, the three major parties in Nepal are again bickering — this time over the Prime Minister’s resignation.

Accusing the ruling parties of backtracking on a verbal agreement that Madhav Kumar Nepal would resign within five days of signing the deal, the Maoists have decided not to cooperate with the government.

They now plans to launch fresh protests for “peace, constitution and change”.

Prime Minister Nepal says he is willing to step down as soon as the three parties sort out their differences, but like the Maoists, Nepali Congress and CPN (UML) have also refused to budge from their stand.
