Not to introduce new constitution
Kathmandu, September 29-A member of the 1990 Constitution draft committee and former Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) warned that the King will herald his own end if he introduces a new constitution.
Amidst speculations that a new constitution is in the offing, Daman Nath Dhungana said that the King has “no right to throw” the 1990 constitution. “The King’s days will be numbered if he throws the constitution,” he said at a programme held by National Human Rights Foundation today. Reiterating his stance that mediation of the UN should be sought to resolve the Maoist insurgency, Dhungana said: “India can also play a vital role in resolving the crisis.” He also criticised the seven-party alliance for not consistently demanding the formation of a constituent assembly.
The president of the Nepal Bar Association, Sambhu Thapa, warned of a “civil war” if the King introduced a new constitution.
