Speaking at a press conference in Arghakhanchi on Friday, Chitra Bahadur KC, Chairman of Rastriya Janmorcha Nepal, said the ethnic federalism model proposed by the UCPN (M) was unacceptable and that federalism is not necessary for Nepal, but rather a model being forced upon us by foreigners.

“The constitution could not be written last time because parties could not agree over forms of federalism. They should drop that demand completely,” said KC. “Although our party is against the current government, we are taking part in elections because it is the need of the hour.”

Asked about his views on the CPN-M’s boycotting polls, KC admitted there was no use rejecting elections because creating a new constituent assembly is the only way out of the stalemate. If elections don’t take place on 19 November, he said the country would be pushed into unimaginable disaster and urged everyone to make polls a success especially since royalists have been harping on a reviving the 1990 constitution.
