National unity must for constitution implementation: Dahal

DOLAKHA: UCPN-Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Tuesday said that there is a need of national unity for the implementation of the new constitution.

On the occasion of ninth anniversary of 'Hamro Radio' 103.4MZ at Charikot today, Chairman Dahal said that the new constitution is ammendable as some issues are yet to be included in it.

He said, "The 13th General Convention of the Nepali Congress has been recently concluded. We are now holding discussion for national unity."

Chairman Dahal expressed belief that Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli's China visit would be very fruitful on the issue of diversity of trade and reducing dependency.

He also suggested that the working procedure issued by the government to make the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) accountable towards the people should be revised.

Also stating that a national media policy is needed to make media systematic, Dahal said that such policy would maintain relevance and discipline in the media sector.

On the occasion, Srijana Khadka was honoured with 'Hamro Radio Lalitadevi Memorial Award', and Rajendra Kumar Shrestha of Sagarmatha Television with 'Bhesh Kumari Khadka Memorial Journalism Award'. Each award carries a purse of Rs 5,000.
