Federal Socialist Forum Nepal (FSFN) has included constitution amendment as its main agenda in the manifesto for the upcoming federal and provincial elections unveiled in Kathmandu on Monday.
Accusing Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN-UML of being anti-identity and status quoist, the manifesto has claimed the constitution could not be amended due to the two parties. It calls NC status quoist despite ideologically being a democratic party and accuses UML of being a communist party only in name.
It also has not spared its ally in Province 2, Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJP), accusing it of focusing more on power than people’s struggle. “Now, we are contesting the polls in Province 2 in alliance with RJP. This has brought the chances of us creating the government in Province 2 closer,” the manifesto reads.
The manifesto has included preparation of detailed project report (DPR) of the proposed East-West railway and moving it forward in five years, and completion of the eight-lane Ring Road in Kathmandu replete with bicylce lanes within five years.
