“CA resurrection is a date expired pill”
CPN (UML) senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal has rejected the idea of resurrecting the already-dissolved Constituent Assembly. Speaking at the fifth anniversary program of Terai Madhes Democratic Party (TMDP) in Kathmandu today, Former Prime Minister Nepal said, “It is like a date-expired medicine so it shouldn’t be revived.”
Leader Nepal argued those who don’t want for the fresh election are proposing for the CA revival. Claiming that the consensus was not possible unless the PM puts into paper, he urged Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai to resign as soon as possible to open the door of the room to consensus. “The whole process of the consensus has been impeded due to the Prime Minister,” Nepal accused.
However, during the program, TMDP Chairperson Mahanta Thakur said that the government elected from the parliament should hold the election according to the international practice. He proposed to form the government under the leadership of another person from the coalition if Dr Bhattarai was not acceptable to the opposition parties.Thakur also claimed that many issues of the Madhes have been addressed within the five years of the establishment of the party.
