Nepali Congress general secretary Krishna Prasad Situala has said the report of the State Restructuring Commission (SRC) cannot be adopted because the commission failed to come up with a single report.
Speaking at the Reporters Club Wednesday, Situala said the SRC came up with two models instead of suggesting a single model on consensus and that the Constituent Assembly cannot adopt these reports.
The NC general secretary's reaction comes a day after the SRC submitted two separate reports on federal model. While the majority members have proposed an 11-state federal model based on ethnicity and linguistic identity another model proposed by three SRC members suggests creation of six states based on geographical positioning.
In another context, Situala said the current political deadlock is not going to end unless the Maoists clarify whether they abide by the seven-point agreement signed with the then seven-party alliance.
"If the recent unity between the Maoist factions is not in favour of the seven-point agreement, there will be no peace and constitution," said he, suggesting Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal to explain whether he had accepted hardliner Baidya faction's line. nepalnews.com
