Govt not making serious effort to gather two-thirds majority in favor of the bill, accuses Yadav


KATHMANDU, July 30: Leader of Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) Mahendra Raya Yadav has accused the government of not showing seriousness toward gathering two-thirds majority in support of the under-discussion constitution amendment proposal.

“The government has tricked us time and again making false promise that they would pass the amendment proposal. The ruling parties can gather 388 votes to form the government; why can’t gather two-third majority in favor of the bill,” Yadav vented ire during an interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal on Sunday.

Stating that the government is not putting serious efforts to gather two-thirds majority he added, “No more lies.”

“The proposal is likely to get endorsed at present.”

“I demand that the government put the proposal to vote at the parliament immediately. RJPN is ready to accept the result whatsoever,” added Yadav.

He also demanded that the government withdraw criminal charges filed against the party cadres, compensate those injured in Madhes movement and give martyrdom status to those injured during the Madhes protest.

He further accused the government of forcing his party to boycott the first and second round of election. “We wanted to participate in the polls. But no favorable environment was created for us. The government made a serious mistake by disregarding our party demands and forcefully conducting election.”

“If the government disregards our party demands again, it can lead to conflict in the country,” Yadav warned.
