Speaking at a program in Kavre on Friday, UCPN-Maoist leader Hisila Yami has claimed that Madhesi Janadhikar Forum-Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav has taken up her party’s agenda. She claimed the six-point agreement signed between the High Level Political Committee (HLPC) and Yadav led MJF-N was the agenda of UCPN-Maoist.
Leader Yami further said that not only the MJF-N but also the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML have accepted the party’s agenda. “Yadav who deserted the UCPN-Maoist came back to the party agenda. Our party would have been heavily criticized if we had brought the agenda, which is why we remained silent. But Yadav brought the same agenda,” she added
The HLPC and MJF-N on Thursday signed a six-point deal, increasing the size of the CA to 585 members, of which 240 will be elected from the first-past-the-post system and 335 from the proportional representation system and the remaining ten lawmakers will be appointed by Cabinet.
The agreement has raised the possibility of holding the elections of the Constituent Assembly on November as announced by the Chief Justice led government.
Similarly, Madhesi People´s Right Forum-Democratic (MPRF-D) Chairman Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar has claimed that he played key role in making possible the six-point deal between High Level Political Committee (HLPC) and Upendra Yadav-led Federal Democratic Front.
Addressing a press meet in Kathmandu on Friday, Gachchhadar said, “The credit for the deal does not go solely to Upendra Yadav because I played important role in making it possible. He also claimed that the agreement to form a 585-member CA with 58 percent PR seats and 42 percent FPTP seats was part of the agenda of the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF)”.
When asked about constituency delineation, he said, “Constituency delineation on the basis of population in Madhes could not give a solution as the cause of Madhes could only be safeguarded through the Constituent Assembly (CA) polls.” He added that November polls should not be disrupted over the constituency delineation disputes.
