Hollow speeches won’t build new Nepal: Nembang
Ilam, June 9:
Speaker of the parliament Subas Nembang today urged ministers and leaders of political parties to work to build a new Nepal.
Talking to media persons in his hometown, Nembang said, “Hollow speeches and promises will not create a prosperous Nepal.”
“Rather than delivering speeches, ministers and leaders of political parties should build a consensus for the creation of a new Nepal,” he said, adding, “The main objectives of the second Jana Andolan were to conduct constituent assembly elections and draft a new constitution. The political parties should work to realise these objectives,” Nembang said. “The process of amending the interim constitution is underway,” Nembang said, adding, “Spadework for holding the CA elections will be done within mid-June.” He added that the issue of the formation of a constituent assembly court will be sorted out soon. Meanwhile, Nembang pledged Rs 70,000 — the sum he is entitled to receive in compensation for his illegal arrest and imprisonment during the royal regime — for the construction of a building for the Ilam chapter of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ).
Demanding compensation for his illegal arrest and imprisonment during the royal regime, Nembang had filed a case in the Kathmandu district court. Three weeks ago, the court issued orders, directing the administration to provide him Rs Rs 70,000 in compensation.
Speaking at a press meet organised by the Ilam chapter of the FNJ, Nembang said, “As the Ilam FNJ played a significant role in the democratic movement, I will donate the compensation for the construction of its building.”
