PM misleading public about statute amendment: UML
Kathmandu, April 10
The CPN-UML alleged that the prime minister had misled the public when he said that an understanding was reached with the UML on the constitution amendment bill.
UML Secretariat Secretary Krishna Gopal Shrestha said that the government has neither discussed with his party nor given any information regarding the statute amendment bill.
A Standing Committee meeting of the UML held here today also condemned the remarks of Nepali Congress leaders against the UML. “We did not expect such remarks from a responsible party against the UML,” said Shrestha. NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba had criticised the UML for its stance on the constitution amendment bill in the assembly organised in Dhangadi by the party.
Meanwhile, the meeting has decided that party candidates vying for mayors and deputy mayors of metropolitan and submetropolis would need endorsement from party Chair KP Sharma Oli. Likewise, other party candidates would need endorsements from the party’s provincial heads, according to Shrestha.
