DHARAN, June 24: Senior leader of the Federal Socialist Forum Nepal (FSFN) Ashok Rai said that the constitution has completely overlooked the identity even though it is the central issue of the current political gamut.
Addressing a mass meeting organized by a nine-party alliance including the CPN (Maoist Center) at Bhanuchowk in Dharan on Saturday, Rai said despite most of the political remained positive toward amendment of the constitution, it hit a snag due to the obstructive role played by CPN-UML.
Meanwhile, Rai accused the UML of standing against the national unity and always remaining as a stumbling block to current political outlet.
“The central issue of the current politics is the identity which the constitution has completely ignored. The constitution should be amended to give an outlet to the current imbroglio,” said Rai.
Meanwhile, Rai said that the constitution should respect and preserve all the nationalities, languages and cultures without discrimination.
