BHAKTAPUR, April 29: The main opposition CPN-UML has refused the ruling Nepali Congress's proposal of helping to pass the constitution amendment bill.

It was shared in a meeting held between the senior leaders of both parties at UML chair K P Sharma Oli's private residence at Balkot Saturday. 

NC leaders including President Sher Bahadur Deuba, senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel and leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula had reached Balkot for the talks in this regard. 

On the occasion, President Deuba had urged chairman of the main opposition party to help pass the amendment bill to ensure Madhes based parties' involvement in local polls. In the response, Oli refuted the proposal stating that it was regressive and against the people's will therefore his party could not support it. 

Chair Oli further claimed to fail the bill. Following the meeting, NC leader Sitaula shared that the meeting was centred on current political condition and the amendment bill. 

Similarly, UML general secretary Ishwar Pokharel also shared that UML turned down NC's proposal to support the bill. RSS
