Birgunj, June 26 :
Deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Chitra Lekha Yadav, today said that an inclusive constituent assembly was the only way out of the nationâ€™s crisis. Speaking at a press meet organised by the Democratic Press Union Nepal here, Yadav said peace without social justice would not sustain.
â€œThe structure of the constituent assembly should be prepared keeping in view Dalits, Janajatis, Madhesi community and women.â€
â€œSocial justice is not possible unless problem of backwards is addressed.â€
Stating that people have had to pay a huge price for bringing the Maoists into agreement status from conflict mode, Yadav warned it would be suicidal if the seven-party and Maoist pact is broken.
She expressed dissatisfaction over the snail-pace of the House of Representatives.
She opined that the recent HoR declaration to provide 33 per cent reservation to women was
not being implemented due to the narrow-mindedness of some chauvinistic male leaders.
Yadav also accused the industrialists of Bara and Parsa of being apathetic towards social development issues in the entire region.
