NC general Secretary Koirala clarified that his party had a stance of amending the constitution only after holding local poll. Leader Koirala, indicating the provision of changing the border of Province No 5 as mentioned in amendment bill, added that his party did not want to split Tarai from mountain and hill therefore, the constitution amendment bill will not be passed.
