Deliberations underway on the constitution amendment bill

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress leader Bimalendra Nidhi has appealed for support to the constitution amendment bill tabled in the parliament.

Taking part in today's meeting of the Legislature-Parliament, leader Nidhi urged all to garner support from all parties to the constitution amendment bill.

Similarly, CPN-UML lawmaker Yagya Sunuwar said his party would not support the amendment proposal brought by the government at a time when the country is facing problems due to landslide and flood. He said the CPN-UML would stand against the constitution amendment proposal.

Likewise, Amanlal Modi of CPN-Maoist Centre, said that all parties should stand in favour of constitution amendment proposal as it was brought in favour of the suppressed people.

Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal leader Sarbendranath Sukla said that the RJP-Nepal would support the constitution amendment proposal with a belief that it would help establish peace and stability in the country ahead.

Leader Ashok Rai, also of the same party, said only the general issues raised by the agitating parties would be addressed.

President of Rastriya Janamorcha Chitra Bahadur KC expressed the view that the constitution amendment would be appropriate only after holding extensive deliberations at the provincial level after the completion of election at all the three tiers.

CPN-UML's Prem Giri said the amendment introduced to recognise a foreign language as national language is not acceptable at any cost.

NC's Pradip Giri said the parliament should not only be used as a forum for making governments but also to inform the people on the burning issues of the nation.

Clause-wise deliberations on the Bill relating to second amendment to the Constitution of Nepal, 2015 is underway at the parliament.
