Challenges galore in implementing constitution: PM Oli
Kathmandu, Aug 1: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said the recent political polarization has added challenges in implementing the constitution.
Addressing a programme on 'Challenges of Constitution Implementation' organized by the Tulsilal Memorial Foundation on the 19th memorial day of leftist leader Tulsi Lal here Monday, Prime Minister Oli said many political forces were hatching conspiracy against the effective enforcement of the constitution. However, the CPN-UML is committed to implementing the constitutional amidst all hazards.
"Although there are some flaws in constitution, the national charter is made for the welfare of the people and the country," he said, warning that the country would witness a constitutional crisis if elections were not held at the local and provincial level by mid January 2018. "Some people are in liglige race to grab the post of prime minister and minister," he said.
The PM further argued that the would-be prime minister was not doing any good for the Madhesi people.
On the occasion, former prime minister and senior leader of the CPN-UML Madhav Kumar Nepal said the UML should have protected the UML-Maoist alliance in view of the presentation of government's policy, programmes and budget. However, both the Maoist and the UML sides had weakness behind the rupture of the alliance, he added.
He suggested that the new government should continue the good activities of the previous government. "Any individual/party fighting for national sovereignty will get UML's support," leader Nepal added.
Similarly, central member of the party Keshav Badal said abiding by the principles of the late Tulsilal Amatya would be true tribute to him.
