Badal doubts statute

CHITWAN, August 1

CPN-Maoist General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa on Saturday expressed doubt that the new constitution would grant people the right to rule.

Speaking at a symposium organised by the party in Bharatpur, Chitwan, Thapa demanded that a perfect statute should grant rights to the suppressed and backward communities of the country without any discrimination.

“It is vital to organise an all-party meeting among the political parties in order to draft a people’s constitution,” Thapa argued. He accused the ruling Nepali Congress and CPN-UML of being status-quoist.

He said he was surprised to see a party like UCPN-Maoist endearing itself with the ruling bandwagon in order to get to power.

Revolutionary Communist Party Nepal General Secretary Mani Thapa expressed his doubts that the constitution would bring  peace to the country.
