Butwal : CPN (UML) secretary Pradip Gyawali has said a vicious game is underway in the country in the name of amending the constitution.
Speaking in a press meet organised by the Press Chautari Nepal, Rupandehi chapter in Butwal today, he said although the government has been talking of constitution amendment thus far, it has failed to validate the same.
“There is talk of constitution amendment putting forth the demand to allow a naturalized citizen also to become the head of state, make the Hindi as the national language and to split Gulmi, Palpa and Arghakhanchi, the hill districts which currently come under Province Number 5, from the province. This is not acceptable at all,” Gyawali said.
The main opposition party leader Gyawali stated that the constitution itself was in a position of being undermined as the government has not yet forwarded the process of holding the elections to all the three tiers of the government by February 11, 2017.
He added that the government was not serious towards holding the elections. RSS
