Army integration before statute: Deuba
CHITWAN: Senior leader of Nepali Congress Sher Bahadur Deuba said the new constitution cannot be promulgated without integration of Maoist’s People’s Liberation Army personnel. “The country is trapped in several problems due to the Maoists,” he said talking briefly to reporters in Bharatpur on Thursday.
The Maoists should honestly implement the agreements signed in the past, he said, adding that Maoist leaders should stick to politics of consensus.
In another context, the former Prime Minister said the High Level Political Mechanism should work on the basis of consensus. Referring to the incident at Congress headquarters on Wednesday, he said internal disputes need to resolve through mutual collaboration.
