Youth lawmakers press leadership to conclude twin task
N24, KATHMANDU: The group of youth Constituent Assembly (CA) members, formed to create pressure for timely peace and constitution, has urged the major political parties to work seriously so as to conclude the peace and constitution drafting processes within the remaining term of the CA at any cost.
A meeting of the group on Friday has stressed the need of taking the peace process to a conclusion and drafting the new constitution within the slated timeframe at all the costs, and thereby institutionalize the achievements of the democratic movements.
Talking to RSS after the meeting, group member Rabindra Adhikari said the meeting has decided to make all possible efforts to compel the parties to reach to a consensus on the remaining tasks of the peace and constitution within April 12.
Besides, parties have been told to work round the clock to conclude these tasks within the remaining 52 days of the CA.
Similarly, concluding that there was no alternative for parties to promulgating the federal democratic constitution through the CA, the meeting urged the party leaders not to leave the Capital until they complete their duty.
“It is a matter of concerns that top leaders of the parties are busy in the party programme instead of concentrating on the peace and constitution drafting issues”, states the press note issued by the group after the meeting.
Moreover, the meeting has called for settling all the issues relating to the integration and management of the Maoist former combatants through the Special Committee meeting scheduled to be held on April 8. RSS
