Singh sings consensus tune

Kathmandu: Nepali Congress general secretary Prakashman Singh said drafting a new constitution on the basis of consensus was the need of the hour.

Speaking at a programme in capital today, newly-elected Constituent Assembly (CA) member Singh said his party would take initiative for drafting a new constitution by taking all the political parties represented there into confidence. The matters of government formation and about the President cropped up in the present should be seriously dealt with as they could fuel people’s frustrations, he said.

Underlining the need of ending long-standing political transition as soon as possible, leader Singh assured of understanding between the Congress and CPN (UML) to settle the contentious issues.
