He further said that they would continue the agitation until their dissatisfactions over the some issues of the new constitution are addressed. 

Stating that major political parties should stand together and should be ready to amend the constitution to address their demands bringing agitating parties into confidence, Karna argued then the Madhes-centric parties boycotted the meeting.
