KATHMANDU: Former Speaker Daman Nath Dhungana has said the non-implementation of fundamental rights reflects the weaknesses of current ruling parties.
During a program organized as part of the BP Literature Festival at Nepali Congress (NC) central office on Wednesday, former Speaker Dhungana said provisioning such many fundamental rights- 31- on the one hand and showing reluctance to implement these are contradictory.
He further viewed, “Current constitution is dominated by the Maoist party. If not, why give him frequent leadership? The constitution is not functional.”
Similarly, Constituent Assembly member and former minister Nilambar Acharya said it was worrying that the laws required within three years of the constitution for its implementation were not made yet.
“If the democracy is to be strengthened as per BP’s thoughts, economic progress is imperative,” he underscored, adding that such exodus of Nepali youths reflects aggression towards political leadership.
On the occasion, NC General Secretary Gagan Thapa, however, claimed that his party brought the Maoist party under its agenda during the promulgation of the constitution.
