Udayapur, Gaighat, June 24, 2019: Responding to the widening difference over the name of the province No. 1, its Chief Minister Sherdhan Rai has urged all the parties representing the Provincial Assembly for consensus.
The provincial government would name the province in consensus with all the parties representing the Provincial Assembly, Chief Minister Sherdhan Rai said while speaking at a press meet organized by Press Organization Nepal Udayapur at the district headquarters Gaighat on Monday.
Rai’s statement has come at the time when not only the political parties representing to the provincial assembly but also the society seems to have divided over the issue of name of the province and its headquarter too.
Interesting fact is here that the Provincial Assembly members of the ruling head Nepal Communist Party (NCP) have also been divided over the issue of name and headquarters of the provincial assembly.
However, Chef Minister Rai did not expose the internal difference during the press meet. As Provincial Assembly has a majority of NCP, we can fix the province’s name on the majority basis but we want mixed unanimously, Rai said.
