NC in favor of constitution amendment: Sharma

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress (NC), the main opposition party, on Thursday made its position clear about voting in favor of a constitution amendment proposal registered in the Federal Parliament.

Organizing a press meet at the party’s central office in Sanepa, the party clarified that it will stand for amending the Constitution to change Nepal’s emblem by incorporating the revised map comprising Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulek.

NC Spokesperson Bishwa Prakash Sharma stated the party is clear in its position to restoring Nepal’s right to Kalapani, Lipulek and Limpiyadhura.

“It’s only about securing the party’s right to an institutional decision, which will be taken by the CWC meeting on May 30,” he said.

He also said that NC, since the past, was in favor of returning of the Indian Army from Kalapani.

Sharma said that NC takes it seriously the statements made by some ministers that NC asked them to take out the issue of constitution amendment from the agenda of the parliament.
