Respect statute, new AG tells govt

Kathmandu, May 14:

Newly appointed Attorney General, Yagya Murti Banjade, today urged the government to respect the Constitution.

He also said the government and the political parties should introduce an interim constitution because the country couldn’t remain functional for a long time without Constitution.

“The necessity of an interim constitution may not rise if the Maoists are ready to come for talks and to go to the constituent assembly soon otherwise an interim Constitution must be introduced,” Banjade said while speaking at a programme organised by Nepal Bar Association.

He urged the government to respect the Constitution or everybody would start avoiding it. “If the executive is not fully respecting the Constitution others will also not abide by it,” Banjade added.
