Prachanda’s comment on Deuba’ delivery in Delhi: Constitution amendment Nepal’s internal matter

KATHMANDU, Aug 25: CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ argued that there is no need to discuss about the issues of constitution amendment with foreign powers as it is the matter of internal affairs.

Dahal’s comment comes after Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, who is on a five-day state visit to India at the invitation of his counterpart Narendra Modi, speaking at Hyderabad House in New Delhi on Thursday, assured Delhi that constitution would be amended.

“The constitution amendment recently failed at the parliament. There is no possibility of amending it immediately. Amendment matters is Nepal’s internal affair. There is no need to talk about it to foreign leaders from foreign country,” said Dahal while addressing a party’s training program in Surkhet.

Dahal further highlighted the necessity of directly elected executive president and added that his party would start campaign to advocate for the same.
