The Nepali Congress Saturday said it was ready to go for revival of the Constituent Assembly provided other parties accepted multi-ethnic 11-province federal model.
NC vice president Ram Chandra Poudel told media persons after a meeting of party office-bearers held at party president Sushil Koirala's Maharajgunj residence that the CA could be revived if the parties agreed on multi-ethnic federal model. He claimed that major parties had agreed to carve out multi-ethnic provinces on May 15 and that they should hold onto that understanding.
According to Poudel, the NC also decided to intensify talks with other parties including the UCPN (Maoist) for a consensus. He said the NC and the UML would form a common view before sitting with the Maoists.
Senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba said that the CA would be revived if the parties were able to settle the issues related to the constitution. nepalnews.com
