Pokhara, September 20
Governor of Gandaki Province Baburam Kunwar today said the country would cease to exist if anarchy and rule of the jungle prevailed.
Addressing a programme held to mark the Constitution Day in Pokhara, Governor Kunwar said, “The rulers have to abide by the rule and law. Assaulting laws and rules will push the country to anarchy and chaos.”
Kunwar stressed the need to end all kinds of discrimination through collaboration among three tiers of the government. “Republicanism, federalism and democracy are the key pillars of the new constitution. The government has to work for the welfare of people as per the spirit of the constitution,” he added.
At the programme, chief minister of Gandaki Province Prithivi Subba Gurung said it was the duty of all stakeholders to implement the constitution.
Gurung said the last 15 months of the province government was spent in formulating laws and laying the foundation for good governance. “We shall embark on the voyage to prosperity and development from now onwards,” he said.
