Bhaktapur, Sept 12: UCPN (Maoist) leader Dr Baburam Bhattarai on Friday said that the political parties were occupied on constitution writing to bring a new constitution by January 22 next year.
On the occasion of the 67th anniversary of Bidyarthi Niketan Higher Secondary School today, Dr Bhattarai said that nothing could obstruct constitution drafting as the Constituent Assembly members were already directed not to entertain any programmes by interrupting the constitution writing. “One and all should unite to institutionalize democracy,” he said adding, “We must concentrate on drafting the new constitution as soon as possible, and institutionalize the achievements of the political movements, and set up a permanent and stable government.”
Dr Bhattarai stressed further to implement the government’s declaration of free education and health citing that the fundamental rights of the people as education, health, employment, food and settlement should be protected. He seems quite optimistic on cnstitution being drafted soon.
