KATHMANDU, Jan 27: Arguing that the current constitution does not deter our country from holding elections, CPN-UML Secretary Yogesh Bhattarai has said that his party is always in favor of elections.
Bhattarai also accused the government of conspiring against elections by registering the constitution amendment bills.
He further said that if Dahal-led government wants to really protect achievements made so far and implement the constitution, it must conduct the local elections by May 14 and federal and provincial elections by January 21.
CPN-UML is always ready to lend the government its support.
Stating that Nepal-India has been enjoying an age-old relationship, their bilateral ties will move forward based on the mutual interest.
“Every country has its own sensibilities. UML does not want to play with the sensibilities of the any countries and no countries should play with the sensibilities of our country,” said Bhattarai.
Speaking at an interaction organized in the Capital by Reporters Club Nepal, Bhattarai said that the country can be small in geography, economy or population but can never be so in terms of sovereignty, independence and nationality.
Nepal-India ties will become affable only after India stops meddling in the internal affairs of Nepal, said Bhattarai.
