Adopt utmost flexibility to resolve existing problems: PM urges UDMF

KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli urged the agitating United Democratic Madhesi Front to adopt utmost flexibility to resolve existing problems.

He said that it was need of the hour to give full shape to the High Level Political Committee.

“Contentious issues can be resolved on the basis of urgency,” he said, addressing a programme on ‘Nepal-India relations: New dimension and responsibility’ organised by International Concerns Center in the Capital on Sunday.

“I urge UDMF leaders not to create problems, but seek solution to them by stepping back from their rigidness,” he said.

Claiming that the Constitution has not discriminated Tarai people, he said that the Constitution could be amended with the time as per need.

The Prime Minister said his recent official visit to India was fruitful as it has helped to wipe out misunderstandings between Nepal and India.

“Now the relations between both the countries will move ahead through a new perspective on the basis of new norms and values,” PM Oli said.

Stating that it was beyond imagination to even think of anything bad against neighbours, the Prime Minister stressed the need for Nepal to get economic benefit from both neighbouring India and China.

“We want to establish balanced relations between both neighbouring countries,” he added.
