By KTM Metro Reporter

March 10, 2012: Chairman of Constituent Assembly Subhas Nemwang has met with Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai and urged him to complete the peace process within a month so that the constitution writing could be completed with the deadline of May 27, 2012. Prime Minister Dr. Bhattarai in turn has assured Chairman Nemwang saying please don’t worry; everything would be done in time; the combatants opting for voluntary retirement have been leaving the cantonments; the three-party meeting would be held on Sunday, and this meeting would be decisive to build a consensus on completing the peace process and the constitution writing.

At the same time, Former Deputy Prime Minister Sujata Koirala holding the Central Working Committee member of Nepali Congress has yesterday said that the government has diverted its attention to trivial matter such as citizenship instead of engaging in the peace process and the constitution writing, ‘The Rising Nepal’ of today writes.

Secretary of UCPN-Maoist CP Gajurel has warned the prime minister of not allowing him enforcing the four-point deal his party has reached with the UDMF, as his group in the UCPN-Maoist has been unable to accept this deal. Secretary Gajurel has made this statement one day after the government and the UDMF have agreed to enforce the four-point deal on Thursday, ‘The Rising Nepal’ of today reports.

Concerning the stability of the current government, officiating Chairman of Madhesi People’s Rights Forum-Republic Raj Kishor Yadav has stated that the UDMF is not for toppling the current government, as the Prime Minister has already directed the Ministry of Finance to allocate Rs 2 million to open a school in the name of people that have been martyred during the Madhesh movement; so, nobody should stand in the way of completing the peace process and the constitution writing.

Chairman of UCPN-Maoist Prachanda has on Friday blamed the opposition parties such as NC and CPN-UML for creating hurdles in the ongoing peace process and constitution writing because they are afraid of having a people-oriented constitution, ‘The Rising Nepal’ of today reports.

Chairman of CPN-UML Jhalanath Khanal has yesterday said that the new constitution could not be promulgated until the current government remained in power, and his party would take over the power if the NC was ready for it; he was 70% sure to complete the constitution writing within the deadline if the UCPN-Maoist was flexible, ‘The Rising Nepal’ of today writes..

The irony is that the CPN-UML has had the luxury of leading the government twice for about 30 months in the immediate past doing nothing. The current government has done something at least breaking the walls and house of the people that have encroached on the roads of Kathmandu. NC leader Narahari Acharya has stood in the way of even such development activities of the current government attempting to prevent the bulldozer tearing the houses of his beloved electorates at Gairidhara in Kathmandu Saturday morning. Mr. Acharya might have been doing something good to his relatives or his electorates trying to block the bulldozer but he is surely aliening his electorates, as everybody in his constituency has been suffering from the narrow road that have been encroached by the unscrupulous people; beware of some of his electorates would certainly not vote for him next time.

Speaking to reporters at Biratnagar airport on Saturday, another unscrupulous NC leader Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that the parties should be ready for fresh elections, as another extension of the CA term is not possible, fresh elections would be the only option; in the past, the extension of the term of CA has been only for pocketing the allowances of the CA members; this time they would not have such opportunity, according to the news posted on the

Members of the Parliamentary Committee on Natural Resources have yesterday directed the government not to enforce the deal on the 750MW West Seti Hydro Electricity (WSHEP) Project the government has signed with the Chinese power developer company called ‘China Three Gorges Corporation (CTGC)’ about ten days ago according to the news posted on,

Lawmakers belonging to NC, Gagan Thapa and Dharmaraj Gurung emerging from the meeting held at Singha Durbar have said that the West Seti deal is “anti-national” and demanded to cancel the project.

These NC guys have been exposing their true pictures of keeping the Nepalis perpetually in darkness just to meet their interest not only not building any new hydropower plants during the 20-year reign of the NC leaders but also trying to stand in the way of the current government trying to build something for making power available to Nepalis.

The Government of Nepal bears 26% and the CTGC bears the remaining 75% cost of the project; the total cost of the project is US$ 1.6 billion; the Chinese company is providing the amount required for the project the loans at the preferential rate; and 2 to 5 percent of the company’s stock will be issued to the locals according to the news posted on the
