KATHMANDU, May 15: A huge step the country is going to take with the drafting of the constitution has hit everyone hard and all Nepali citizens are waiting for it eagerly. Since the constitution has been sifted three times, people are wondering whether the deadline is down for another shift.
Even the young citizens seem worried about the deadline and share their views on the difference this shift would make.
“It makes a difference to me if the deadline is shifted again,” says Ujwal Yadav, adding, “not only does it make a difference but it will definitely raise a lot of problem for different sectors of the country and even our studies.”
Echoing the same, 20-year-old Ashim Adhikari, a computer engineering student at Nepal College of Information Technology (NCIT), says, “It does matter, not only to me but to every Nepali. The politicians have been playing a nice game by adding extra time whenever they want. They have been enjoying the budget that comes out of the citizen’s pockets and we have complied but we won´t take it anymore and will act if it’s extended again.”
But to the common people, the previous shifts in the drafting of the constitution have left them frustrated. Many young people have now given up thinking about the constitution and have accepted it as a part in the political pipeline.
“No, it won´t make any difference to me because it has been shifted already in the past but we can´t deny that the protest will take its deadly shape after the extension,” says Moin Uddin, 22, students of Bachelors of Business Studies at Nepal Commerce Campus. “As students, we will have to face a lot of hardships because our course will not finish and by the time it cools down, exams will be round the corner,” he added.
Young people are also equally aware and are awaiting the constitution like everyone else. The future belongs to the youth of the country and the young are eagerly awaiting the changes that come with the constitution.
