Constitution will come soon: Dr Bhattarai
Gorkha, July 8: Former Prime Minister and UCPN (Maoist) senior leader Dr Baburam Bhattarai has said that the federal democratic republic constitution would be promulgated soon.
He said that the new constitution would be issued by mid-August as the preliminary draft of the constitution was sent to the public for their feedback after the endorsement from the Constituent Assembly (CA) meeting on Tuesday.
The long journey of a political course would be completed after the constitution promulgation, the UCPN (Maoist) leader said at a programme orgnaised by Association of Elderly Citizens here today.
He also urged the commoners to provide feedbacks after reading the draft if the rights to be included in the constitution were missing. Dr Bhattarai said that the draft of the constitution could be read in different media after the draft was published in the Nepal gazette.
On the occasion, Dr Bhattarai said that he would raise voice for increasing monthly allowance to the elderly citizens to Rs 3,000 from Rs 500. Speaking on the intra-party feuds, Dr Bhattarai claimed that organising a separate gathering of cadres was his compulsion.
“Earlier, the party establishment faction conducted a separate meeting. Then, I assembled the remaining cadres,” Bhattarai argued.
He also said that a ‘new force’ was not a new political party but it was needed to drive the nation. RSS
