KATHMANDU, MAY 13 –
Nepali Congress has called for forging consensus on the issue of state restructuring and forms of governance rather than voting on them at the Constituent Assembly session.
During the meeting of Constitutional Committee (CC) on Sunday, NC leader Bimalendra Nidhi urged to understand the gravity of the issues and settle it through consensus than by majority votes. “As the issues are much vital, we have proposed to settle the issues by agreement,” said Nidhi.
Nidhi made the proposal after the Dispute Resolution Sub-Committee under the CC prepared the questionnaire on the disputed issues including the state restructuring of the new constitution.
Meanwhile, a list of questionnaire with 30 disputed issues has been submitted to the CC today. The sub-committee headed by the UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal submitted the list of the disputed issues to be settled through voting in CA.
CC would be sending the contentious issues to CA Chairman Subash Chandra Nembang, who would hand them over to the lawmakers and call for voting at the CA session.
The CC meet is underway at Singha Durbar. The CA session has also been called for today afternoon.
