Constitutional Council decisions ‘anti-democratic’ says NC

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress (NC) has termed the decisions made by the Constitutional Council in absence of main opposition party leader 'anti-democratic’ after the council recommended names of five individuals for chairperson posts in constitutional commissions in NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba's absence.

According to NC Spokesperson Biswo Prakash Sharma, as a opposition party leader is statutory member of the council, decisions made in absence of main opposition leader breach the established procedure and culture.

Likewise, the agenda of expiry of the extended tenure of incumbent working committee of its student wing, Nepal Student Union, was also discussed in a working committee meeting held by the party today.

The meeting also continued discussion on government’s apathy to respond to the demands of agitating surgeon Dr Govinda KC and its move to scrap hospitals established in names of late NC leaders- Girija Prasad Koirala and Sushil Koirala, Spokesperson Sharma informed.
