DHADING, Nov 8: Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Bimalendra Nidhi has said that a constitution amendment proposal will be finalized within the next four days and registered in parliament before mid-November.  

Speaking at a public school inauguration function at Dhola VDC of Dhading Tuesday, DPM Nidhi informed said that the government is in the last stage of drafting the amendment proposal and that it will be registered in parliament before mid-November.   

He said that the amendment proposal is being drafted based on common understanding reached among the political parties. 

“However, I am really surprised by statements from leaders from the main opposition CPN-UML that no such understanding has been reached regarding constitution amendment,” he said. 

He criticized CPN-UML leaders for avoiding the major political parties’ initiative to forge consensus on constitution amendment proposal.   

“Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal and leaders from the Nepal Congress have already held several rounds of talks with CPN-UML on constitution amendment proposal. I do not understand why they are saying that they have not discussed about the constitution amendment issue with us,” he added.  

He accused the CPN-UML of trying to pose hurdles in the constitution amendment process.
