India leaders seek promulgation Nepal''s constitution in time
Kathmandu, Apr 21 (PTI) Concerned over the non-completion of the peace process in Nepal, a group of Indian politicians today sought promulgation of a new constitution within the stipulated deadline of May 27.
Indian people and government wish Nepal to complete the peace process on time, BJP leader Vijay Jolly said.
Jolly, however, said he has expressed India''s concern over the non-completion of the peace process to the Nepali leadership.
A five-member multi-party Indian delegation is currently on a three-day visit to Nepal at the invitation of Sanghiya Sadbhavana Party led by Anil Jha, who is also the minister for industry.
Congress leader Raashid Alvi, a member of the delegation, said promulgation of a new democratic constitution would not only make its neighbours happy but also bestows stability in Nepal.
India would pour more assistance to Nepal after the peace process concludes, he said.
During the visit, the Indian leaders also called on President Ram Baran Yadav and Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai. Besides Jolly and Alvi, Trinamool leader Shatabdi Roy, NCP leader Tariq Anwar and Congress leader Alka Lamba were other members of the delegation.
The water level of the Yamuna river has crossed the danger mark in Delhi, increasing the threat of flood. Locals are gearing to face the crisis as the rains are at least twice as heavy as usual in northwest and central parts of India.
