UCPN (M)’s liberal policy reason behind first CA’s inability to draft constitution: Dahal
UCPN (M) chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal, who recently hogged the headlines by revealing three-mistakes of his life, on Thursday admitted that the much-anticipated new constitution could not be promulgated by the first Constituent Assembly (CA) because of the liberal policy and attitude adopted by his party.
Speaking at a program organised in Banepa, leader Dahal revealed that the constitution could not be drafted because his party adopted a very liberal policy in the first CA so as to forge consensus with NC and CPN (UML) parties to ensure the new constitution.
Stating that the new constitution could have been drafted if the parties had agreed to go for voting (in the CA) on the issue of promulgating the new constitution from the first CA itself, he said he has now realized that his party made a huge mistake by agreeing to dissolve the CA instead of going for that option.
He saidthat it has been agreed in the High Level Political Committee that the second Constituent Assembly going to take shape after the election would come up with the first draft of the constitution within six months and promulgate the new constitution within a year.
Dahal, who visibly appeared to be in an election mode, said there is danger that the nation may not have the new constitution if the people don’t give their full mandate to UCPN (M) once again. nepalnews.com
