It's political problem, not constitutional: Upendra Yadav

KATHMANDU: Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal's chairman, Upendra Yadav, said the country currently faces political, and not constitutional, problems and they should be resolved accordingly.

He referred to the formation of interim government in the then Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi's leadership to hold the Constituent Assembly II elections going beyond the constitutional provisions, and opined that similar decision was called for at present also.

Yadav, who is a vocal critic of the Constitution and has been demanding its rewriting, claimed that the new statute was not good at all to embrace.

Not just the Article 298, the whole Constitution is unsuitable to practice, he said at an interaction with media in the Capital today.

The Federal Alliance, led by  Yadav, has said that it would support the no-confidence motion that the Nepali Congress and CPN Maoist Centre brought in against Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.
