Kathmandu, July 2 (ANI): Former Nepal Prime Minister and Unified CPN (Maoist) Chairman Prachanda has claimed that a new government under the leadership of his party would be formed within next one-and-half months.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Prachanda said he was now concentrating on forming a "national government with civilian supremacy", which would come into existence in one month and half.

He said that his party would not join the present 'unconstitutionally-formed' government.

"They must be day dreaming if they are expecting us to join the present government," he said.

Prachanda said he had discussion on his concept of a national government with the Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML, Nepalnews reported.

"The people have already indicated that the peace process and the constitution drafting cannot be successfully accomplished without Maoist," he added.

Prachanda stepped down from the government nearly two months ago following a row with President Dr Ram Baran Yadav over sacking Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) Rookmangud Katawal. (ANI)
