Janamorcha chief skeptical of timely constitution

Chitra Bahadur KC, Chairman of Rashtriya Janamorcha Party.KATHMANDU: President of the Rastriya Jana Morcha (RJM), a fringe political party, has cast doubts a constitution with federalism will come on the stipulated date.

Speaking at a press meet organised by the Progressive Journalists’ Association at the Nepalgunj Airport today, he said his party was in favour of issuing the constitution within the stipulated time but was steadfast in its belief that federalism would put the national unity and integrity at risk.

He said federalism could not be the option for the unitary system in a country like Nepal with all its ethnic diversity and alleged that forces that were seeking to stoke ethnic conflict in the country were behind the concept of federalism on ethnic line.

K.C. also underpinned the need of institutionalizing the republic by issuing the constitution on time. RSS
