Kathmandu, April 6
A group of lawmakers formed to exert pressure for peace and constitution Friday urged the political parties to complete the works relating to integration and management of armies by Sunday.
A meeting of the group held in Singhadurbar said that the leaders having the responsibility to complete the tasks of peace and constitution were traveling outside the capital to deliver their monotonous lectures.
The pressure group expressed concerns about such acts of the leaders.
In a press release issued after the meeting, the pressure group said, "As per the previous consensus reached among the political parties they should complete the works related to the finding the whereabouts of the disappeared persons and formation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission by April 12."
The pressure group also warned that they would come up with stricter moves if the leaders failed in taking peace to a logical end and drafting the new constitution.
Nepali Congress leader Gagan Thapa said, "This time we won’t come up with sit-in-programme rather our protest will be stricter. The political parties must complete the task related to peace and constitution at any cost."
The next meeting of the pressure group will be held on April 9.
Meanwhile Nepali Congress District Committee Kathmandu accused UPN-Maoists of acting irresponsibly and impeding the works related to peace and constitution.
Issuing a press release, district chairperson of the committee Professor Bhimsendas Pradhan said, "At a time when we have only 52 days left for drafting the constitution, concerted efforts were not made to accomplish the tasks within the deadline."
