Amid speculations of Parliament dissolution, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Monday told Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba and CPN Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal that he was ready to face the no-confidence motion at the Parliament. He made it clear he, however, would not put in papers with the no-confidence motion, which the Nepali Congress and CPN Maoist Centre brought, in place. Prime Minister Oli, also the chairman of CPN-UML, had invited Deuba and Dahal to his official residence in Baluwatar for a meeting today. Dahal’s party had withdrawn support to the coalition government and grouped up with the Nepali Congress to challenge Oli and his leadership with a n0-confidence motion. The meeting lasted for for over an hour. On the occasion, Deuba and Dahal asked the Prime Minister to resign and pave the way for formation of new government. In response, Prime Minister Oli said he would not put in papers but face the House as the no-confidence motion was already registered, according to the Prime Minister’s press advisor Pramod Dahal.
The Prime Minister told the two leaders the demand of resignation and the no-confidence motion do not get along as resignation was matter of understanding while no-confidence motion meant everything was ruined, Prime Minister Oli’s political advisor Bishnu Rimal informed. Offering the two leaders two options — understanding (resignation) or constitutional step (no-confidence vote) — the Prime Minister said he wanted to follow understanding and agreement [between the parties] and did not want to be obstruction or play as the country was in crisis, according to Rimal. Referring to the transitional provisions in the Constitution, which would not easily let the formation of new government happen, Prime Minister Oli further asked the two leaders, who forged an agreement to bring down the Oli-led coalition government, to look at the matter seriously, it has been learned.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
