Stir for timely statute: Dahal

KATHMANDU: Chairman of UCPN-Maoist Puspha Kamal Dahal on Wednesday said the stir that his party announced recently was to clear all the hindrances that have been coming in the way of timely constitution drafting.

Speaking at a programme in Kirtipur, Dahal said that his party would not bow against any power for the establishment of the civilian supremacy. He further claimed that Nepal would get the new constitution only with his party’s leadership. He also said that the protest programmes that his party has announced would compel all the forces to pull back so that the new constitution would be drafted in the prescribed time.
