Speaking at a programme oraganised by a pro-Maoist group of intellectuals in the capital Saturday, Dahal revealed that he recommended Bhattarai unwillingly as he did not have other options before him.
“It was in my knowledge that if the [previous] government failed in its mission, I would be blamed. And, if the government would not be formed under Bhattari’s leadership again I would blamed,” Dahal said.
Dahal also lamented the statement of Defence Minister Sarat Singh Bhandari over the possible disintegration of the country.
