Surunga ( Jhapa), Dec 1: Nepali Congress senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba has accused the UCPN (Maoist) of causing obstructions to the drafting of a new constitution.
Talking to media persons at Birtamod of Jhapa this morning, the former Prime Minister accused the main opposition party of raising unnecessary issues in the constitution-writing. He arrived here to attend the zonal-level party cadres’ training in the neighour district Ilam.
The Congress leader claimed the party is flexible regarding the issue of promulgating a democratic constitution within the scheduled date, but the progress is hampered due to stubbornness of the UCPN (M).
The CA has still two months to promulgate a new constitution and it can be issued on time if political parties move ahead on the basis of consensus and collaboration to that end, he added.
