Govt launches campaign to clarify illusions on Constitution

KATHMANDU: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Federal Affairs and Local Development Kamal Thapa said that a month-long nation-wide awareness campaign is going to be launched from Monday to clarify the illusions spread about the recently promulgated Constitution.

He added that the campaign entitled "Nepal's Constitution: Peoples' Constitution, Peoples' Constitution among the People" would alert the people.

At a media conference held at the Ministry today, DPM Thapa said the campaign would be organised in all 75 districts and the Prime Minister, DPMs, Ministers, former PMs and other VIPs would join the campaign.

He even urged the protesting parties to follow due constitutional process to establish their agendas as it was a progressive document and genuine demands could be addressed through amendments as well.

The campaign would clarify the illusions and would disseminate the features of the Constitution through interaction programmes among all sides and areas of the people.

Similarly, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli would inaugurate the campaign at the City Hall on Monday.

The Ministry has shared that a documentary covering features of the Constitution would be screened on the occasion.
