President urges solidarity

January 2, 2010

President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav on Friday urged political parties to work together to draft the constitution on time by sorting out differences through dialogue.

Speaking at the inauguration of Kathmandu Peace Marathon at Dashrath Stadium, Dr. Yadav said the country is going through a difficult transition and political parties have the important responsibility of drafting the constitution as scheduled.

“I urge all the parties to move forward realising their responsibilities of institutionalisation of the democratic republic,” said the president.

The peace rally was organised by Madan Bhandari Sports Academy (MBSA) as part of a campaign for successful implementation of the peace process.

Defence Minister and MBSA Chair Bidhya Bhandari, and Patron of the Academy and senior CPN-UML leader K.P. Oli were also present at the opening ceremony.

Expressing their solidarity to end violence, killings and strikes across the country, thousands of representatives from social organisations, sports and youth organisations, ministers and Constituent Assembly members, among others, took part in the peace rally that started from Dashrath Stadium, Tripureshwor and ended at Basantapur.
