Mahat reiterates opposition to ethnic based federalism
NUWAKOT: Nepali Congress (NC) central member Dr. Ram Sharan Mahat has said that the NC would in no way allow the country sliding into federalism based on ethnicity
Speaking at the third anniversary of Dasharath English Boarding School at Jiling VDC, leader Dr. Mahat further said the carving out of federal states in the name before Tamang, Newar, Brahminm Chhetri etc would jeopardize time-honored tolerance practiced in the Nepali community.
‘Dividing the country like pumpkin and cucumber in the name of ethnicity while going beyond ground reality would not promote unity rather create an environment of rivalry’, he claimed.
Leader Mahat stressed the need to delineate federal states being cautious to the emergence of central governance system again, possibly stemming from defamation of federalism while making more states. RSS
