CPN (UML) Chairman KP Sharma Oli has said that the constitution has to be amended as per the need in the course of its implementation.

As the leader said, the party discussed this matter with the Nepali Congress, too, but there is no agreement between the parties to amend the constitution specifying the article(s) and the issues to be revised.

Speaking at the party Secretariat meeting today, the UML Chair ruled out the agreement between the two parties to form a Commission to proceed ahead with the constitution amendment.

He said the UML-NC political equation is for promoting political stability and development.

The UML Chair expressed his concerns over the spread of 'propaganda' that the UML and NC are attempting to harm the constitution and the constitutional system. According to him, this is just a rumor.

Chair Oli contended that the two parties had to come together against the 'tendency' to sideline the interests of the citizens, and development needs of the country by indulging in instability and personal benefits.

He added that the constitution is a dynamic document, a guideline to the society, and thus amendable as per the need of the time. The matter will be discussed in detail with Nepali Congress.

No sharing of ministries

Oli said the party has not reached a deal with the NC regarding the sharing of ministries in a government to be formed ahead. However, there is an agreement on a policy of providing space for all parties in the government.

He also stressed on increasing the country's productivity with a focus on entrepreneurship, agro-based industries, entrepreneurship and modernization of agriculture. (RSS)
