CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli has said that the new constitution writing process and reconstruction works should be carried side by side.
At a news conference organised at Tribhuvan International Airport before his departure to Bangkok for a regular health check-up, Chairman Oli said, "Constitution writing task has reached to a decisive turn. It has reached to the draft committee from the Constituent Assembly. The new constitution would be promulgated by mid July as per the understanding among political parties."
Stating that constitution writing and reconstruction task would not be obstructed in his absence, he said officiating Chairman Bamdev Gautam would take the party's activities ahead.
Chair Oli expressed the view that the government and political parties should take initiatives to normalize life as most people are still panicky as they have lost family members and children in the earthquake.
