Kathmandu, July 30 : Presidium member of the Rastriya Janata Party Nepal, Rajendra Mahato, has said the support his party extended to the government would continue with the hope of constitution amendment.
At a press meet organized by Reporters' Club on Monday, leader Mahato said his party was hopeful of this government and it was on wait and see moment for the party.
He however said it was not possible that the RJPN would join this government. General convention of the party would elect new leadership on consensus, leader Mahato added.
"Government has two-thirds majority. We exert pressure on it to get our demands fulfilled. Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli was reminded of our demands some days back. He was urged to address the issues of Madhes, Dalit, and indigenous through the constitution amendment," he underscored.
Moreover, the leader demanded the government to withdraw the false charges labelled on the leaders and cadres in connection with the Madhes agitation. He viewed that Nepal needs to maintain harmonious relations with both neighbours.
Leader Mahato further said his party could not be united with the Federal Social Forum, and the relations with the major opposition Nepali Congress would depend on its activities.
