Kathmandu, Mar 25 (ANI): Nepal Prime Minister Prachanda today said that the uneasy relationship among the coalition partners has created doubt on the Constitution drafting process.

Speaking at the Constitutional Committee of the Constituent Assembly here, Prachanda said that there are doubts among the general public on Constitution drafting due to differences among the parties.

He, however, expressed his commitment to timely drafting of the Constitution.

He also believed that doubts on timely statute are obvious as the country, itself, is in a transitional phase.

He also informed that the Army Integration Special Committee (AISC), which has the responsibility to look after the integration and rehabilitation of the UNMIN-monitored Maoist combatants into the state army, has even drawn up timetable, which has been agreed by major parties.

Prachanda believed the army integration would be concluded within June and added that it will expedite the ongoing peace process.

He claimed Nepal has been facing suppression from foreign powers though the country seems to remain as an independent and sovereign country.

Claiming that Nepal is currently passing through the state of semi-colonialism, Prachanda stressed on the need to strengthen sovereignty and national integrity through the new Constitution that the Constituent Assembly is to draft this year.

He has handed over his suggestions for the new Constitution on behalf of his party.

The committee has invited top leaders of the four big political parties to get the view of their parties on the constitution, Nepalnews reported (ANI)
