The major opposition Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (UCPN-M) on Tuesday reiterated that the formation of new government in its leadership is the only option to solve the present political crisis in the country.

It warned of taking to armed struggle once again if the May 28 deal is not implemented.

"There is no alternative to taking to an armed struggle if the May 28 deal is not implemented at the earliest," UCPN-M vice Chairman Narayankaji Shrestha said, and warned his party will not let the government bring in its policy and programs and new budget in the parliament if the prime minister did not step down.

"The formation of government in the Maoist leadership is principal," Narayankaji Shrestha.

"There is no controversy for the leadership and who leads the government is matter of secondary concern," he told the media persons at the party headquarters in Kathmandu where the UCPN-M politburo meeting is underway.

According to him, during Tuesday's meeting the speakers accused the ruling parties of betraying the May 28 deal that agreed upon the consensus based politics, and voiced for the incumbent government's resignation in order to pave the way to from the national unity government.
