POKHARA: Rastriya Prajatantra Party chairman Pashupati Shumsher Rana today said the ongoing agitation of the UCPN-Maoist had made the drafting of the new constitution uncertain.
Talking to mediapersons at a press conference organised by the Kaski chapter of his party here, Rana asked the Maoists to call off the agitation and to stop disrupting the House.
“The UCPN-M should move ahead by forging a consensus with other political parties after joining the national government,” he said.
“There won’t be any change in the UML-led government until the promulgation of the constitution and a logical conclusion of the peace process,” he said. “Twenty parties want the UCPN-M to join the present government.”
Stating that the people wanted peace and security, he said it was necessary for the former rebels to tread on the democratic path.
“The Maoist perception of agreement is unilateral and impractical,” he said, adding that the resolution motion forwarded by the UCPN-M in the parliament was against the Interim Constitution, meaning that it could not be discussed in the parliament.
He also said that the Vice President had mocked the law by not taking the oath in Nepali.
