Statute will be amended with majority, says Yadav

Pokhara, June 9

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health and Population Upendra Yadav today said that the constitution would be amended with two-thirds majority to rectify mistakes in the charter.

Speaking to mediapersons at a press meet organised by Federal Press Forum, Kaski, in Pokhara today, Yadav held that the Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal participated in the government after signing a two-point agreement, which includes constitution amendment.

Stating that ethnic-based federalism was the goal of this party, DPM Yadav said that there was no alternative to resolving issues raised by ethnic communities to ensure political stability in the country.  DPM Yadav ruled out the possibility of his party’s unity with a fake communist party. “However, a socialist party could be unified with real communists,” he added. He said there was no point in unifying with a bogus communist part. DPM Yadav said people had high expectation of the government.

“The government has to ensure good governance and control corruption to bring prosperity in the country,” he said. DPM Yadav added that the government would work to reduce poverty by creating employment opportunities.

DPM Yadav said the Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal was in favour of directly-elected executive president.  Asked if the government in Province 2 would change, he ruled out such a possibility. “The provincial government will not change at any cost,” he said.

Deputy Prime Minister Yadav who is also the health minister said he was committed to improving people’s access to health services.
