Kathmandu, Oct. 2: Minister for Home and Foreign Affairs, Madhav Prasad Ghimire, has said that election to the Constituent Assembly (CA) was indispensible for institutionalizing peace process for giving an outlet to the transitional period of the country.

At a programme organised by the Centre for Democracy and Development on the occasion of the International Gandhi Day here today, Minister Ghimire said that there was no alternative to holding CA election on the fixed date to institutionalize democracy and peace process.

Stating that the government was ready to hold the CA election peacefully by ensuring law and order in time, he stressed on the need of playing positive roles by the political parties, civil society and other stakeholders for the same.

Minister Ghimire said that we want peace and non-violence in the country and it would be meaningful if we could move ahead by adopting the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi.

On the occasion, Nepali Congress leader, Narahari Acharya, said that it was necessary to follow the noble ideals of Mahatma Gandhi.

Similarly, former Ambassador Dr. Jayraj Acharya and Chief of the Tri-Chandra College, Prof. Dr. Hari Prasad Thapaliya, said that all sectors of Nepal including political and social should follow ideals and principles of Mahatma Gandhi at a time when social and moral responsibilities have been deteriorating.

Deputy Head of Mission at the Indian Embassy to Nepal, Jaydeep Majumdar, said it would be worthwhile if mutual brotherhood and co-work are moved ahead by adopting the ideals of Gandhi. RSS
