CPN (Masal) says nationality under threat

BUTWAL: Communist Party of Nepal (Masal) General Secretary Mohan Bikram Singh has said the country's nationality, sovereignty and indivisibility was under growing threat.

Singh stated this in a press release issued to disseminate the decisions taken by the semi-underground party's fifth national meet in Butwal on Tuesday.

Referring to the efforts underway by the ruling parties to amend the constitution to address the demands of the Madhes-centric parties, the country's veteran leftist leader Singh has also alleged that the constitution was being amended as per India's design.

He has called for opposing the proposed second amendment to the constitution in parliament jointly, adding that his party was against the amendment.

Singh also objected to holding the local level elections in three phases, saying the polls should have been held in a single phase.
