KATHMANDU, Dec 12: The student union leaders close to the political parties dissenting the registration of the constitution amendment bill organised a protest assembly at Maitaghar Mandala in Kathmandu today.
Leaders belonging to the student unions affiliated to the CPN-UML, CPN-ML, Rastriya Janamorcha and Nepal Workers and Peasants Party organized the assembly, stating that the amendment bill was not in favour of the country and the countrymen.
Youth Association Nepal (YAN) President Rajiv Pahari underscored the need for delineation of provincial boundaries that would unify people living in hill, mountain and terai rather than causing an emotional separation among them.
Youth Organization affiliated to the Rastriya Janamorcha Chairperson Tika Thapa pressed for revoking the amendment bill, claiming that it was brought forth to extend foreign influence and interference.
ANNFSU Secretary RC Lamichhane stated that bill had fouled the environment for all three levels of election to bring into effect the new constitution. RSS
