Details of public feedback on draft statute sought

KATHMANDU: Former president of Federation of Nepali Journalists Bishnu Nisthuri on Sunday filed a petition at Parliament Secretariat demanding details of public opinion collected from all 240 constituencies on the draft constitution. Nisthuri said he filed the petition because the concerned body had not informed the public on whether or not the opinions collected were incorporated in the new constitution. “It is the citizens’ right to know what kinds of opinions were expressed,” he added.
