Political parties should come together for development of the country: Leaders

Kathmandu, April 23: Various political party leaders have pointed out the need for all political parties to stand together to take ahead the country on the path to economy, social and cultural development alongside the implementation of the new constitution.

At an interaction organised by the ‘Ganesh Man Singh and People’s Movement Martyr Memorial Peace Academy’ in the Capital on Saturday to mark Loktantra Day, the speakers said that all people have the same role to play in implementing the constitution that has accommodated rights of all communities and promulgated through the consent of 90 percent population of the country.

“Views and rights of all people cannot be addressed in the constitutional document as it is a document of consensus. Some section of political parties like Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN (Maoist) may not be fully satisfied with it. But despite such reality, it is the need to implement the constitution,” said former Speaker Subash Nembang.

He opined that rights of agitating groups should be ensured through talks and consensus.

Likewise speaking at the event, NC leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula said that all political parties should unite when it comes to implementing the constitution regardless of their differences over some other issues.

Meanwhile on the occasion, NC leader Tirtha Man Dangol was honoured with ‘Ganesh Man Jana Andolan Sworna Award’ for his contribution to democratic movements. RSS
