No CA after statute: UML chief


Chairman of CPN-UML K P Sharma Oli on Thursday said the Constituent Assembly will be dissolved after the new constitution is promulgated.

Addressing a function organised by Chhabilal Memorial Academy on the occasion of Chhabilal’s fifth Memorial, Oli said giving continuity to CA even after promulgation of the statute would mean there could be changes in the constitution.

“The commission to be formed to delineate the borders of Pradeshes will function as the CA after it is dissolved,” he said, adding that there could be some hidden interest to create chaos in the call to continue with the CA till the delineation of borders.

Oli further said the nation will move ahead to a new height as soon as the constitution is promulgated.

A national unity government will be formed to implement the new provisions of the constitution and modernise Nepal by expediting reconstructions work, he added. He claimed that the 16-point agreement was very important to lead the nation towards drafting the new constitution. “The previous CA had failed to deliver the constitution just because the parties failed to sign an agreement like the one we did in the 16-point pact,” he claimed.
