KATHMANDU: A section of civil society leaders and politicians have suggested that present political deadlock should be ended in line with the Constitution of 1990.
They also said that foreign interference was to blame for Nepal's political instability.
Speaking at a talk programme organised by the Civil Society Nepal here today, political scientist Dipak Gajurel urged the politicians to do away with an illusion that the 12-point agreement would give a peaceful and constitutional way out to the present political deadlock.
He said, "Political parties should admit that the course itself was wrong. Theoretically, the Interim Constitution of Nepal 2063 B.S is dead. And parties should go back to the track of the Constitution of 2047 B.S as we have no constitutional way left."
He also claimed that the nationality cannot be protected by the ruling parties.
Also speaking on the occasion, Dr Yagya Prasad Adhikari said that major political parties were giving space for foreign interference and added that political consensus from such parties was very difficult.
Journalist Chandra Kishore Jha said that foreigners would get chances to play in our internal affairs if Nepalis were weaker.
During the programme, Yubraj Gautam, Bharat Basnet, Ananda Santoshi Rai and others urged one and all to safeguard our nationality.
