Yadav demands amendment before second phase polls
May 17, 2017-
Chairman of Sanghiya Samajbadi Forum Nepal (SSFN) Upendra Yadav has demanded that the constitution be amended before the second phase of local elections scheduled for June 14.
Speaking at a party programme in Nepalgunj on Tuesday, Yadav said the government had repeatedly betrayed the Madhes-based parties. “The government had assured us to hold the first phase of local polls only after making amendment to the constitution. But the elections were conducted without addressing our demand,” he added.
The SSFN chief said the government had assured the Madhes-centric parties to amend the statute before June 14. “But conspiracies are being hatched now to betray us again,” he said.
Yadav warned that his party would take part in the elections only if the constitution was amended.
