CA’s four-year term expired automatically on Sunday after it failed to promulgate the new constitution within the stipulated time.
Our dreams to build a prosperous, peaceful and democratic Nepal has been shattered once again, said Yadav lamenting over the loss of CA.
While saying that the country has already internalised historical achievements including the inclusive democratic system of governance, federalism and secularism secured through the People´s Movement 2006/07 and the Interim Constitution, 2007, Dr Yadav called on all to maintain the feelings of mutual brotherhood and social goodwill in society.
