KATHMANDU: Chairman of the Unified CPN (Maoist), Pushpa Kamal Dahal has expressed the confidence that the political parties would be able to forge consensus within a few days as the environment of trust has developed among them of late.
Speaking at a sit-in held at the State Affairs Committee Hall by lawmakers as per their campaign of exerting pressure for peace and constitution writing here today, he said the constitution should be promulgated as per the due process if the political consensus was not forged. However, the environment for writing the constitution has been very positive, he added.
Chairman Dahal said, "One of the major tasks of the peace process, the army integration process, has been concluded, and now, we all have been working seriously to conclude the remaining task of the constitution writing process."
All the parties seemed to be very serious and making efforts on peace and constitution writing while evaluating their latest activities over the last two days. However, some other issues that are connected to the peace process such as formation of the Commission on Truth and Reconciliation, the Commission on Enforced disappearances are still remained to be settled, he noted.
Dahal said the Constituent Assembly members' sit-in protest has provided the moral support to the leaders to take forward the constitution writing process. "There is no more need of sit-ins, let's work as per our shared aspirations," he added.
