Deliberations on draft of new constitution continues

Kathmandu, July 5: Lawmakers have argued that the draft of the new constitution presented in the Constituent Assembly (CA) has ensured that the Nepali people would get a democratic, inclusive, pro-people and progressive constitution in the near future.

They said so in today’s CA meeting in course of deliberations on the proposal tabled before it, seeking permission to publish the first integrated draft of the new constitution in Nepal’s gazette for people’s feedbacks.

Stating that some amendments were necessary on some points of the draft, they stressed that the issues of inclusion incorporated in the draft should be clearly described. The lawmakers said that it was necessary to make people know about usefulness and necessity, as there was no clarity on the structure of the districts and suggested the government not to make any hesitation to give rights to the backward communities without making any compromises on the issue of federalism, republicanism, among others.

Lawmakers Anuradha Thapa Magar, Aindra Sundar Nembang, Ramesh Kumar Lama, Mamata Giri, Kalasa Mahara, Sindhu Jalesa Budhathoki, Ratnadevi Gurung, Mukta Kumari Yadav, Ram Chandra Sah, Kriparam Rana, Manmohan Bhattarai, Chandra Maharjan, Rabindra Pratap Shah, Siddhilal Singh, Tukraj Sigdel, Dr Rajan Bhattarai, Uday Nepali Shrestha, Anandai Panta, Rajya Laxmi Shrestha (Nuwakot), Bidur Sapkota and Surendra Kumar Karki, among others participated in the meeting.
