KATHMANDU, Aug 24: The main opposition party, CPN-UML, has concluded that the constitution can’t be amended at the interest of other countries.
Speaking at a press meet organized to announce the decision made by the 43th Standing Committee of the party; UML General Secretary Ishwor Pokharel said that the main law of the country can’t be amended to serve the interest of foreign powers.
The UML has accused the incumbent government of attempting to take the country toward instability, indecision and constitution vacuum.
“A conspiracy is being hatched to invite political and social conflicts for that,” reads the statement issued by UML.
At the time when the government is preparing to amend the constitution, UML has termed it objectionable and meaningless. The party has accused that the government’s activities are intended to bow down before other countries and disturbing the equilibrium between neighboring countries.
“UML strongly condemns such activities. The party is clear on playing an effective role to prevent any such activities,” reads the statement.
The UML has concluded that discussing constitution amendment in foreign land is objectionable. It has further criticized the government’s decision of sending special emissaries to India and China before the government gets a full shape.
“It has come to light that the Prime Minister sent a letter to the Indian Prime Minister regarding constitution amendment and other internal affairs,” UML said in a statement, “It has threaten our liberty and capacity to make an independent decision. It was a flawed attempt to invite undesirable foreign concerns.”
Demanding to make public the letter, UML has cautioned the government to refrain from doing works that will strike a blow to self-respect of Nepali citizens.
