Bhattarai bats for constitution amendment to prevent conflict

LAHAN: Naya Shakti Party Nepal Coordinator Dr Baburam Bhattarai has warned that the country would plunge into conflict if elections were held forcefully without amendment of the constitution.

Speaking at the public gathering organised by the NSPN under its Himal-Pahad-Terai-Madhes national campaign in Lahan of Siraha district on Wednesday, he urged all political parties to shun their obstinacy to amend constitution before local polls.

There is no meaning of elections without bringing disgruntled groups including Madhesi and indigenous nationalities into confidence, he said, adding that the constitution as a dynamic document should be amended as per public demand and aspiration.
