Amendment can't make Constitution all-acceptable, says Rawal

KATHMANDU: CPN-UML Vice-chairman and former Deputy Prime Minister Bhim Rawal has said that the Constitution could not be made acceptable to all even after several amendments to it.

Addressing a party cadres' training organised by the Bagmati-Kathmandu Liaison Committee here today, leader Rawal while referring to the demand for amendment raised by Tarai-centric parties said that the amendment as per the interest of Tarai-centric parties would also not make the Constitution acceptable to all.

The UML leader claimed putting for the agenda of making the Constitution acceptable to all might be a motive not to implement the Constitution.

He said the agendas introduced by the Prime Minister while addressing the Parliament on Thursday were out of the constitutional provisions.

In another context, Rawal opined that the 1950 Nepal-India Treaty was irrelevant and stressed its amendment as soon as possible.
