KATHMANDU: Chairman of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party Pashupati Shumser Rana has suggested Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai to clear legal hurdles to hold elections to the Constituent Assembly.

After meeting the Prime Minister at the latter’s residence Baluwatar on Sunday, Chairman Rana said he suggested the Prime Minister to forge broader national consensus and remove legal obstacles through the President and amend laws necessary for the election.

Similarly, he told the Prime Minister that referendum was the best option to decide about the naming of provinces because the parties could not stop debating on this.
