Kathmandu [Nepal], Nov. 23 (ANI): The Government of Nepal today decided to present the Constituent amendment bill in Parliament over the next few days after meeting with leaders of the Madhesi Morcha.

Prime Minister and CPN Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal was given the responsibility to move ahead with the Constitution Amendment proposal during a meeting held with the leaders of ruling parties and the Madhesi Morcha this morning, reports The Himalayan Times.

A meeting was held earlier on November 21 to resolve the differences over the purported amendment of Constitution amongst the top leaders of the three major political parties-Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and CPN Maoist Centre but failed to make any headway after the UML stuck to its stance against the amendment proposal.

A proposal to go for elections after amending the Constitution was floated by Dahal at the meeting however could not make any solid decision after the UML leaders questioned the essence of the purported amendment. (ANI)
