New constitution should be promulgated on Bhadau 1st: Minister Basnet
Bhaktapur, Aug. 2: Minister for Industry, Mahesh Basnet, has said that the country would get a new constitution within Bhadau 1 (August 18).
Speaking at a programme organised to declare Anantalingeshwor Municipality in Bhaktapur as fully-literate municipality today, Minister Basnet said that preparation was underway to promulgate the new constitution on Saun 32.
He said, "Preparation is underway to issue the new statute on Saun 32. It will be appropriate to promulgate it on Bhadau 1 as the day of promulgating the new constitution is a historical day and there might be problem celebrating the day in future sure as the month of Saun might not always be of 32 days."
