KATHMANDU, Jan 27: Chairperson of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that the constitution amendment is essential in achieving the goal of ethnic liberation.
Dahal, who was speaking during an oath-taking ceremony of the party's sister organization Federation of Indigenous Nationalities Nepal in the capital on Monday, said that the constitution amendment is a must for realizing the goal of ethnic liberation, equality, justice and proportional representation.
He assured the people from marginalized communities that the constitution will be amended for the same.
"Suppressed class, marginalized groups and communities are still not completely liberated; therefore their concerns will be addressed through constitution amendment after having a broader national political consensus."
Speaking further, he maintained that equality and equity can be best achieved only if development and prosperity are balanced along with the social system. "Although we have got a victory in the battle against feudalism and capitalism, there is still a long way to go for winning the fight against equality. And, for which the national unity is essential."
"NCP is all committed to ensuring the rights of people by eliminating all forms of prevailing disparities in the country."
Unity with diversity can't be maintained in the country until and unless rights are equally provided, he added.
