Koirala against Dahal-led HLPC
Sep 10, 2014-
Nepali Congress (NC) leader Shekhar Koirala has said that constitution may not be drafted in the stipulated time if UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal leads the proposed High Level Political Committee (HLPC).
“Dahal wants to form the HLPC in order to come back to power,” said Koirala, accusing Dahal of staging a drama since “he did not get any position as prime minister, president, CA chairman or in the constitutional drafting committee.” He said that the constitution writing is in limbo after the UCPN (M) and CPN-Maoist pursued their own agenda putting aside the constitution drafting calendar.
Talking to media persons in Baglung on Wednesday, Koirala blamed the weakness of NC leadership for the uncertainty surrounding constitution writing. He reached there to attend a programme organised to mark the birth centenary of BP Koirala.
