Leaders with differing opinion walk out of CPDCC meeting
Kathmandu, Aug 9: Some of the leaders with differing opinions have walked out of the today's meeting of the Constitutional, Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee (CPDCC).
Leaders from Sanghiya Samajwadi Forum, Terai Madhes Lokatantrik Party, Sadbhawana Party and Terai madhesh Sadbhawana Party walked out of meeting, voicing differing opinion on the consensus forged yesterday regarding the number of federal states and its demarcation.
Sadbhawana Party leader Laxmanlal Karna said that since the demarcation of federal states was favoring 'Khaswadi', some Madesh-centric parties could not accept it.
Similarly, voicing qualm over the decision to federate country into six states, Sarbendranath Sukla of Terai Madhesh Lokatnatra Party argued that since the demarcation and federal state model was regressive, his party could not endorse it at all.
The report on the consensus garnered in the CPDCC will be presented in the Constituent Assembly today itself. The meeting of the CPDCC is ongoing,
