BANEPA, Feb 7: Naya Shakti Party Coordinator Dr Baburam Bhattarai has stressed on the need to democratize the structure of political parties active in the country.

Speaking at an interaction program ‘Federalism implementation, naming of province 3 and capital’ in Kaverpalanchowk on Thursday, Dr Bhattarai argued that reforms would not be possible without democratizing parties.

He also criticized the current model of federalism. “The federalism of the country has been designed with preparing concrete bases.”

“Province 3 should be named in a way that would keep ethno-cultural identity of Tamangs and Newars who have majority in the region,” he added.

Also speaking on the occasion, Nepali Congress district secretary Dinesh Lama underlined the need to properly implement constitutionally guaranteed rights of all three tiers of governments to enable local level.
