Constitution writing process cannot be obstructed: Chair Oli

Damak, July 6: Chairman of the CPN (UML), KP Sharma Oli, has said that tearing of the preliminary draft of the new constitution by some individuals would not hamper the constitution drafting process.

At a news conference organised by Press Chautari, Jhapa, at Oli’s residence at Damak-10, Chairman Oli said there was no meaning of burning the draft who have vented their dissatisfaction on the proposed draft of the new constitution. He also expressed belief that the new constitution would be promulgated at any cost, as there would be no more obstacle to the constitution writing process.

Stating that amendments could still be made on the proposed draft, the CPN (UML) Chairman claimed that the new statute would be promulgated by the end of July. Also a lawmaker from Jhapa Constituency No 7, Mr Oli said now no one can obstruct the promulgation of new constitution. Leader Oli is here to monitor undergoing development activities in his constituency.

He said the country would head towards the path of prosperity and institutional development of the republicanism once the country gets the new statute.

CPM (UML) politburo member Sherdhan Rai, central committee member and Mechi Zonal In charge Hikmat Karki, among others were also present in the news conference.

Chairman Oli on Sunday visited the construction site of the tallest idol of Lord Buddha of the world at Dumse of Damak-5. He also interacted with locals of the area.
