All should accept new Constitution: Bhattarai

Speaking at an interaction organised in Thimi of Bhaktapur to formally declare the Naya Shakti a political party on Sunday, Bhattarai urged all to work for the implementation of Constitution.

He also said that rights of Madhesi, indigenous, Janajatis, women and impoverished community should be ensured through an amendment to the Constitution.
