Kathmandu: While some of the top leaders are trying to lure the Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist with 26 seats offer through cabinet appointment to bring them in the Constituent Assembly, Nepali Congress (NC) general secretary Prakashman Singh has taken exception towards such offer to the poll opposing party.  Addressing the inaugural of Liaison Office of Election Campaign at Bijulibazar in Kathmandu today, Singh expressed his serious reservation towards the remarks of some leaders that the Baidya-led CPN-Maoist could be brought to the Constituent Assembly through the cabinet appointment.

“Nobody has a right to distribute the seats of Constituent Assembly under the cabinet appointment,” said Singh.
