Kathmandu, August 11

With the Constituent Assembly reaching the final stage of drafting the final copy of the constitution, preparations have begun for the Nepali Congress General Convention slated to be held from September 19 to 22 in Kathmandu.

“The party today discussed formation of various committees to prepare for the party’s convention, including the main preparation committee, document preparation committee, party statute amendment committee and others,” said party spokesperson Dilendra Prasad Badu after a meeting of the party’s office bearers and government ministers representing the party held at Prime Minister Sushil Koirala’s residence in Baluwatar.

The meeting decided to settle disputes related to issuing the party’s active membership at the earliest and speed up preparations as the NGC is approaching, according to Badu. “We will sit on Thursday and discuss the detailed plan of action for the convention,” he said.

Meanwhile, issuing a separate statement, the NC today directed its workers not to participate in any kind of movement and violent activities and maintain restraint as the Constituent Assembly has entered the sensitive stage of delivering the new constitution.

The NC said that it was the responsibility of all people to make the historic work of constitution drafting a success. “NC requests all people to maintain restraint and not to participate in any kind of movement,” said the statement.

The NC condemned incidents of arson and vandalism of houses and properties of its Joint General Secretary Purna Bahadur Khadka and CA member Hridaya Ram Thani and government offices in Surkhet district yesterday.

The NC demanded that the government take the situation under control and provide compensation to the victims.
