Parties should forge consensus to extend CA deadline: Minister
Kathmandu: Nepal`s three major political
parties should jointly agree to extend the tenure of the
Constituent Assembly and fix a new date for drafting the
constitution as its promulgation within the stipulated time
frame of May 28 was unlikely, a senior minister said on Thursday.
Minister for Industry Mahendra Yadav accused Unified
CPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress and CPN-UML for not giving due
attention towards drafting of the constitution and focusing on
The blame for being unable to draft the constitution on
time would go to political parties as they accorded lesser
priority to it while focusing their attention towards gaining
power, he pointed out.
Inaugurating the 21st National Industrial Fair here,
Yadav said it would not be possible to draft the constitution
unless the Maoist cadres were managed as per the peace accord.
The minister also asked the Maoists to dissolve their
paramilitary setup, the Young Communist League and return
seized property to the owners.
