Butwal, Jan 25: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Bhim Rawal has said that the demands of agitating Madhesi parties were addressed with the amendment of the constitution.
He added that the demand of allocating the election constituency on the basis of population was addressed and other genuine demands would be fulfilled through talks as the government was positive for the same.
DPM Rawal urged the agitators to stop the protesting programmes as the people were already victimized by the earthquake and protest could not outlet the current problems.
While inaugurating the 4th Annual General Assembly of the Rupandehi Trade Association here today, DPM Rawal expected constructive role from agitating parties to resolve the Tarai issues as the government was serious for the same.
He further said that the good neighbours and honest patriots would be judged when the nation faced crisis. DPM Rawal further praised the tolerance, discipline and harmony of the people shown during the critical phase.
He further stressed on controlling the black marketing. He added that the new constitution of Nepal was promulgated with the consent of about 90 per cent lawmakers as such practice was not found in bigger democratic nations India and United State of America as well therefore it could not be termed as it was issued in hurry.
It was drafted with the hard efforts of eight years therefore it should be accepted by all those who practiced ethical politics, Rawal added.
DPM Rawal said that the constitution could be amended if there were any lapses in any articles.
He informed that the diplomatic initiations were going on with Indian sides to remove the border blockade and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli would soon visit to India.
On the occasion, journalists Bishnu Ghimire and Bhagbati Pandey were felicitated with this year’s best journalism award established by the association.
