Nepal can not become a secular nation: Shashank Koirala

The Nepali Congress Central Committee member Sashank Koirala is also not in favor of retaining secular status of the country. He remarked, “A country with more than eighty per cent Hindu population cannot become a secular nation”.

Controversial issues such as the secular statues and number of federal provinces are amendable in the new constitution, he opined.

“People willing Nepal can retain its lost Hindu identity”, he said and continued, “The constitution is amendable and all issues of disputes should be directly settled by the general public.”

“I see that the decision to declare Nepal secular is not only controversial but it also possesses threat to Nepal’s stability and could invite conflict in the country”, he said.

“Extremists under various pretexts are conspiring to destabilize the country yet again,” said Koirala and continued, “Sooner we resolve the controversial issues better for country’s health.”

On a different note Koirala claimed that his party was not engaged in any controversy to derail the government rather I think this government will fall on its own.
