Constitution sans identity, federalism not acceptable to FSFN: Yadav

BIRGUNJ: Federal Socialist Forum Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav said that constitution without identity and federalism would not be acceptable to his party.

He made the statement while speaking at a press conference organised by the Madhesi Journalist Association, Parsa in Birgunj on Thursday.

Saying that the four political forces were trying to deliver the regressive constitution by sidelining the past agreements and dominate the Madhesi people, Yadav warned that his party would protest the move from Parliament and streets.

Accusing the four political forces of trying to promulgate the constitution by making the Constitution Assembly 'rubber stamp', leader Yadav said that Madhesi and indigenous groups will never accept such type of constitution.

Stating that the preliminary draft of the constitution, which was tabled at the Constituent Assembly on June 29, was against the spirit of the interim constitution, former minister warned that his party would tear the copies of the constitution if its demands were not addressed.

Also speaking on the occasion, senior leader of the Federal Socialist Forum Nepal Ashok Rai said that the 16-point agreement was a regressive move of the leaders of the four political forces.

Saying that the preliminary draft of the constitution was issued against the past agreements, leader Rai said that it was just a day dream that the new constitution would bring peace and prosperity in the country.
