Discussions on Constitution Amendment Bill continue

KATHMANDU: The Parliament on Thursday held deliberations on the Bill on First Amendment of Constitution.

The discussions had begun on Monday.

Lawmakers of various parties aired their views on the Amendment Bill during the discussions.

Since a breakthrough is yet to be reached to end the United Democratic Madhesi Front agitation, deliberations on the Bill have been slowed down in the hope that the parties would forge a consensus soon.


In today's meeting also, the UDMF lawmakers had chanted slogans demanding that the House halt discussions until their demands were met.

Meanwhile, the House meeting has been adjourned for 11 am on Sunday.
