Lawmakers chant slogans at CA hall

Nepalese Constitution Assembly members protest at the Constitution Assembly building against federalism and the dissolution of the constitution assembly, as the midnight deadline of the nation's first federal constitution approaches in Kathmandu May 27, 2012. A new constitution is widely seen as crucial to helping end the instability that has plagued Nepal since the end of a Maoist-led civil war in 2006 and subsequent overthrow of the monarchy, but it has been thwarted by demands for the country to be divided into states along ethnic lines.

KATHMANDU: Lawmakers affiliated to various political parties chanted slogans at the Constituent Assembly hall premises in New Baneshwor on Sunday after the CA meeting slated for 11 am failed to kick off.

They demanded that the meeting be started immediately and encircled the CA hall. Lawmakers affiliated with the Janajati Caucus and Madheshi parties had chanted the slogans.

Maoist  lawmaker Tilak Pariyar slammed the lead political parties and said that they cannot be mute mulls of the three lead political party senior leaders while addressing the agitating lawmakers.
” Lawmakers are not mute mulls, they are the representatives of the people,” Pariyar said demanding that the constitution be promulgated by voting on the reports prepared by the 11 thematic committees of the CA on the basis of two third majority.
