Lawmakers divided on second amendment of constitution bill

KATHMANDU: The lawmakers have been divided on the Nepal Constitution (2nd Amendment) Bill-2073 presented in the Legislature-Parliament after long political debates. 

During the parliament meeting Sunday, the lawmakers from opposition parties- CPN-UML, CPN-ML and Nepal Workers and Peasant Party, and Janmorcha Nepal- severely censured the tabling of the second amendment of the constitution, arguing that it was a misplaced priority, while the lawmakers from the ruling Nepali Congress, CPN (Maoist Centre) and Federal Socialist Forum said the amendment was imperative to address the aspiration of the people from Tarai/Madhes.
