KATHMANDU, Aug. 31: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the genuine demands of the Madhesi people relating to their dissatisfaction with some contents of the constitution could be addressed through dialogue and consensus.
Addressing a program organized by the Constitution Day main celebration committee at the Home Minister today, PM Dahal said, "Efforts are underway to consolidate the nation by ensuring the broader acceptability of the constitution. The constitution has reflected our originality. However, it can be amended as per the time."
The PM further said except Nepal's sovereignty, territorial integrity and national independence, other issues could be changed as per the need.
"The experience in the world says there is never 100 percent consensus and agreement on any agenda. The compromise and agreement sometimes may result in grudges," he said, adding that it was a matter of pride to get opportunity to celebrate Constitution Day after bringing the constitution through the Constituent Assembly after long struggle.
On the occasion, PM Dahal suggested the committee for innovative way of celebrations. He expressed commitment that the members of the first and second CA would be provided medal or certificate for their contribution to the constitution writing. RSS
