KATHMANDU, Nov 26: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said that the government was committed to implementing the constitution and holding the elections. It has already been preparing for the same.
Addressing the Press Center Nepal Central Committee meeting held at the PM's official residence in Baluwatar today, he said since the present government was formed to implement the constitution, it was working for the same.
He also said that the government was preparing to table the constitution amendment proposal in a day or two, by holding dialogue with all stakeholders. "The first priority is to hold elections, and it will and must be held," the Prime Minister said.
Prime Minister Dahal however said that some forces were working to just put him in a trouble despite his pure intentions to resolve the problems facing the country.
On a different note, Prime Minister expressed concern over the media leaving out 'Prachanda' from his full name, including by the government media. He said that the word which symbolizes revolution and change was an integral part of his name, including in his citizenship and passport.
On the issue, he directed the Minister for Information and Communications to address the matter soon.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister for Information and Communications Surendra Kumar Karki said he was working with a new thought to help the working journalists but was taking time due to dilly dallying of the bureaucrats.
The media too are not covering issues concerning the rural sectors, of change and enthusiasm, he said while adding that the government media were at least addressing those sectors.
CPN (Maoist Center) Spokesperson Pampha Bhusal urged journalists affiliated to the Press Centre to give priority to the news concerning the people and to disseminate positive news reports.
The meeting chaired by Chairperson of Press Center Maheswar Dahal discussed matters relating to organizational development and implementation of the working journalists act, according to Joint General Secretary Bishnu Sapkota. RSS
