Kathmandu, Nepal: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has emphasized to amend the Constitution rather than implementation of it to address the concerns of the disgruntle forces.
Speaking at a special program organized on the occasion of Constitution Day at the Army Pavilion in Tundikhel on Monday, Prime Minister Dahal said constitution can mature only after timely amendments.
As Madhes-based communities are still dissatisfied with the existing provisions of the constitution, the Constitution must be open to amendments, Prime Minister Dahal said. However, he did not mention even the tentative deadline to amend the constitution.
In the same function he also mentioned that the government is committed to hold the elections to implement the constitution. The government is preparing to hold three elections on time to implement the constitution, he said.
On the occasion, various dignitaries including President Bidya Devi Bhandari, Chief Justice Sushila Karki, Speaker Onsari Gharti Magar, deputy prime ministers, ministers, high-ranking government officials, and chiefs of diplomatic missions in Kathmandu and among others were also present.
