Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has clarified that the constitution amendment bill was registered in a bid to forge a national consensus. Inaugurating the fifth Dhading Festival at Dhading on Thursday, PM Dahal argued that the constitution amendment bill registered on November 29 this year was the same one as registered by the CPN-UML Chair KP Sharma Oli and Nepali Congress (NC) then President Sushil Koirala.
Dahal insisted, "It is imperative to increase wider acceptability of the bill to bring into effect the new constitution." Forewarning of crisis plaguing the country due to the politics of negation, Dahal urged the major opposition, which has been objecting the bill, to seek resolution through parliament.
He shared that the major issues such as constitution amendment, impeachment against the suspended CIAA Chief and elections will be dealt based on a package deal in consultation with the major opposition, Madheshi Front and Rastriya Prajatantra Party.
Reaffirming the non-revocation of the constitution amendment bill, the PM urged the UML and other opposing parties to put an end to the disruption of the parliamentary proceedings.
He also assured the locals of his support to help increase the beds in the district hospital in Dhading to 50.
