KATHMANDU, Nov 27: CPN-UML Chair KP Sharma Oli has pressed for putting an end to transition before springing into constitution amendment.
Unveiling a book 'Yuwa Awaz: Adhar Ra Karya Bhar' (Youth's Voice: Base and Responsibility) published by youth wing of UML- Youth Association Nepal (YAN) here on Sunday, leader Oli argued that the constitution was a dynamic document and it could be amended anytime, but, ending transition was the first need of the hour.
The former Prime Minister blamed the incumbent government that it was trying to push other important tasks such as holding elections at three levels to the backburner by emphasizing amendment of new constitution.
Clarifying that the UML was ready for the constitution amendment provided it secured the welfare of the public, Oli forewarned that the geographical indivisibility and sovereignty would be at stake due to revision in national charter.
Also speaking at the program, UML Secretary Pradeep Gyawali blamed the incumbent government for attempting to foment conflict among public in Hill, Mountain and Tarai belts by floating the constitution amendment proposal rather than advancing its effective implementation.
Echoing with leader Oli and Gyawali, UML politburo member Mahendra Pandey, former Minister Mahesh Basnet, YAN President Rajiv Pahari stressed the implementation of the new constitution as the first task of the State. RSS
