Kathmandu, Sept 25 : Acting Prime Minister and Nepali Congress (NC) Vice-President Purna Bahadur Khadka said that NC should take the lead to troubleshoot the practical implications that surface in implementation of the constitution
Responding to the concerns raised by the NC central office-bearers and Members of Parliaments (MPs) at the party meeting, Khadka recalled that the constitution was promulgated under the leadership of the then party president and Prime Minister Sushil Koirala with the commitment to amend it in course of time.
"Some practical implications could arise in constitution. NC should lead the amendment motion to resolve this issue," Khadka said while warning that entire achievements could collapse if something goes wrong. "We should not forget this," he added.
Also speaking at the meeting, NC general secretary Gagan Kumar Thapa argued that federalism is not being implemented in the right way adding that we need to ensure reforms in several things.
He also ruled out the allegations that federalism was imposed by others.
Thapa also questioned saying 'who we are blaming by leading this system towards failure ourselves by not drafting more than 40 important laws'.
Likewise, another NC general secretary Bishwa Prakash Sharma argued that dignity of the President as an institution should be promoted to make republican system robust.
Sharma argued that the recent issue of giving amnesty to the culprits has received several criticisms towards the President and added that the people are frustrated as the President as an institution was criticized due to wrongdoings of the government. (RSS)
