Thapa trashes possibility of new constitution
Kathmandu: At a time when political parties are upbeat about promulgating the new constitution within the stipulated time frame, a leader from the fringe party has trashed such hopes.
Kamal Thapa, Chairman of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-N), said that the new constitution won’t be coming in the remaining 57 days.
He backed his claim arguing that the lead political parties were yet to forge consensus on various disputed issues of the constitution in making while addressing a program in the capital.
Thapa warned that the inability of the lead parties to draft the constitution within the given timeframe would plunge the nation into unprecedented crisis and urged the parties to correct their weakness and move ahead.
Inaugurating the RPP-Nepal Kathmandu district level cadres’ orientation programme, said the Nepali Congress, the CPN (UML), the Madhesi Front and the UCPN (Maoist) should accept their failure and apologize to the people for being unable to fulfill the mandate given to them.
