The opposition alliance led by UCPN-Maoist has questioned if the Prime Minister Sushil Koirala truly wants to promulgate the constitution through consensus.
After PM Koirala urged them to sit for talks to find consensus on constitution drafting process in a public statement yesterday, the opposition parties held a meeting this morning in the UCPN (Maoist’s) Parliamentary Party Office in Singha Durbar to react to his call.
Taking Prime Minister Sushil Koirala’s call as a positive note, the 30-party alliance has urged him to send another letter for holding decisive talks.
The meeting has decided to ask the PM to send another letter saying that the letter sent prior does exclude 12-point understanding, interim constitution and it doesn’t express commitment to institutionalize the achievements made so far.
Leaders including UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (Democratic) Chairman Bijay Kuamar Gachchhadar were present in the meeting.Follow @gorkhapost
