Dhankuta, November 24:

Central member of the Nepali Congress Narahari Acharya today said that Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala may have led the pro-democratic movement, he has been unable to democratise his own party.

Addressing a press conference organised by the Dhankuta chapter of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ) here, Acharya said the presidents of the Nepali Congress and Nepali Congress (Democratic) are firm that party unification is impossible until there is internal democracy in the NC.

“Support for ceremonial kingship is not the official view of the NC. Rather, it is a personal one,” said Acharya.

Stressing that establishment of peace is impossible as long as there is monarchy in the country, Acharya said, “All have to work for the establishment of a republic in the country.”

“Though changes have taken place in written documents, there is no change in the actors or their mentality,” said Acharya, adding, “It is difficult to implement the comprehensive peace treaty.”

Tribhuvan University’s Professor of Political Science Krishna Khanal told the press conference the draft of the new constitution should be a document of agreement.
