KATHMANDU, Dec 9: Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba said nationality could not be strengthened without trusting Madhes that makes up half the total population of the country.
He has also accused the main opposition, CPN-UML, of doing divisive politics in the name of Madhes and hill. Deuba was speaking at a two-day inaugural program of the statute convention of the Nepal Civil Service Employees' Union (NCSEU) close to the NC in Kathmandu on Friday.
"It was former Prime Ministers Sushil Koirala and KP Sharma Oli, also UML Chairman themselves, who earlier signed a proposal to revise Province No 5. But the protest by the UML against the constitution amendment proposal at present means an attempt to play a politics of division in the name of nationality," argued the former Prime Minister.
He also stressed the importance of creating conducive environment for civil service employees to discharge their duty freely.
On the occasion, NC General Secretary Dr Sashank Koirala viewed that all parties should come together to implement constitution, saying the country may head towards chaos in case of the failure of constitution implementation.
Newly elected President of Nepal Tarun Dal, Jitjung Basnet, informed that the Tarun Dal would launch a nation-wide campaign against extortion, hooliganism and corruption soon.
A total of 450 representatives including 127 member-working committee of the NCSEA are scheduled to endorse the statute. RSS
