BHAKTAPUR, Dec 9: Deputy Prime Minister Bimalendra Nidhi has said government was ready to forge consensus by revising the constitution amendment bill registered at the Legislature-Parliament.
Inaugurating the 6-day international trade fair at Sallaghari here Friday, DPM Nidhi made it clear that government was ready for revising constitution bill so that all sides would be on board.
The political parties had agreed to amend constitution when UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli was the prime minister, he argued, urging the UML to join the constitution amendment process.
According to the DPM, obstruction of parliament proceedings was the obstruction of constitutional and democratic process. For the effective implementation of the constitution, elections are essential, he underscored.
"Political parties will forge agreement soon for the implementation of the constitution," DPM Nidhi hoped.
On the occasion, FNCCI Vice-Chairman Dinesh Shrestha said the government should help create investment friendly atmosphere to promote industries.
Similarly, FNCCI Bhaktapur Chapter Chair Krishna Prasad Tamrakar demanded the government that it provided 99 ropanis of land to the Chapter for holding international fair.
Organized by the Bhaktapur Chamber of Commerce and Industry to mark 50 years of its establishment, the fair will get on until December 14.
The venue for the fair is an open field covering 99 ropanis of land at Sallaghari, Bhaktapur Municipality-17.
