KATHMANDU, April 21: CPN-UML Chairman Jhalanath Khanal said the political parties are now very close to consensus on all disputed issues of constitution writing.
Talking over the phone with to local leaders of Kanchanpur district from his residence in Dallu on Saturday, Khanal said the parties have been putting efforts into finishing the constitution writing task within May 27 and making it a historic day.
On the recovery of a huge cache of ammunition in Kailali on Friday evening, the UML chairman warned that propulsion of the peace process, keeping arms outside, would only undermine the people’s hope for lasting peace and prosperity.
On the occasion, the district leaders urged political parties to act cautiously while restructuring the state, making sure that communal harmony remains intact.
They also stressed that the state should not hold a different view against the Far Western region and asked for efforts at the state level for the development of the region.
