UCPN-Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has claimed that the as of late formed Questionnaire Committee does not have any importance.
Dahal has claimed such after the Constituent Assembly (CA) Chairman Subas Chandra Nembang shaped a 73-member Proposal Committee on Sunday afternoon.
Condemning the CA Chairman Nembang for being the “representative” of the ruling parties–Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN-UML– the UCPN-Maoist Chairman warned that 19- party alliance would concoct stern protest programs.
The Committee was shaped to resolve contentious issues of the constitution amid the protest of opposition parties.
Speaking with journalists outside the CA hall after emerging from the meeting, Dahal further said that the ruling parties have transformed the CA into a barrack.
Dahal claimed that the nation would invite another clash if the new constitution was declared through voting process.Follow @gorkhapost
