Kathmandu, 16 July, 2017 : Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) has showed signs of not supporting constitution amendment bill, that the government has registered in the parliament to address the grievances of Madhes-based parties, without participation of the main opposition CPN-UML.
RPP leader Dilnath Giri told that the party can support the amendment bill with reservations on condition of addressing the problem of tarai-Madhes."But the major three parties must agree on the issue of constitution amendment for that," he stated. "The government must hold discussion with the opposition if the amendment is in national interest, and be able to take them in confidence," he added.
"UML has said this amendment bill is not in national interest. There must be a debate to prove how it is in national interest if it is," he said. "We must also listen to UML's opinion on amendment. There must be discussion on the points that UML feels are anti-national," he elaborated.
