Oppn haven’t quit CA : Bhattarai

Gorkha Post




UCPN (Maoist) leader and former Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai has said that the opposition alliance have not yet left the Constituent Assembly (CA).

Bhattarai denounced the ruling parties are attempting to restate the constitution of 2047 BS through majority based voting process.

Speaking during an interaction program organised at Pokhara on Friday, leader Bhattarai said that the protests were being just carried out against the emphatic decision of CA Chairman Subas Nembang to launch process for constitution drafting on January 25.

He said that the alliance had to move out of the CA for some time as the ruling parties were attempting to resuscitate the old constitution rather than institutionalizing the issues brought up by the current revolution through the CA.

“Our stand is that the CA process should be stopped and the constitution should be drafted through consensus,” he said, “Don’t befuddle yourselves that we quit the CA.”

Leader Bhattarai claimed that the 9-point proposal tabled by the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML was like a design to bring back the old constitution, which caused the dispute and extended the political turmoil.
