Government is willing to address genuine demands, says Oli

Kathmandu : Nepalese Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli on Saturday said that the government is willing to settle down genuine demands of the parties protesting the country’s newly promulgated Constitution.

Oli made the statement while laying foundation stone for the Tarini Prasad Koirala Media Village in Biratnagar of Morang district today. Many other prominent leaders also spoke at the function.

The Himalayan Times quoted Oli, as saying “The government is ready to solve the problem through talks if the demands are genuine. As a democratic Constitution is already in effect, let us build the nation. Why are you discontent with the Constitution?”

The Prime Minister said that the Constitution had ensured rights and protection of all the people of the country including Dalits, marginalised communities and backward regions.

He, however, maintained that he could not condone any separatist or anti-nationalist remark as the government had always kept the unity of the nation at the top of its priorities. He further added that the government was moving ahead with a mission to let the residents of the country enjoy all basic needs and rights.

Nepal has been in a crisis like situation ever since the new constitution has been implemented, as many ethnic groups and minorities claim that their welfare has been undermined in the constitution. (ANI)
