 Kathmandu, May 21– The Constituent Assembly (CA) meeting today is continuing discussions on the report of the Constitution Records Study and Determination Committee.

   The CA members have differences of opinions regarding the topic of providing military training to Nepali citizens completing 18 years of age in course of their deliberations on the report related to the determination of the points of disagreement mentioned in the report of the Committee on Protection of National Interests of the erstwhile CA.

   The CA members belonging to the Nepali Congress and the CPN (UML) are against providing military training while the CA members of some other political parties including the UCPN (Maoist) have voiced in favour of it.

 The CA members who spoke against providing military training to youths argued that instead of conscripting them, the youths should be given employment and skill-oriented training. They argued that providing military training to the youths would increase hostility in society and the neighbouring countries too would see it in bad light.

   The CA members who spoke in favour of the military training argued that only the young people well trained in military craft could protect the integrity and sovereignty of the nation and that it was also the demand of the time.

    So far 13 CA members have participated in the deliberations on the report in the meeting. The meeting is in progress.
