Minister for Supplies Min Bishwokarma today said the date of the two elections--provincial and federal--would be announced before Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba pays an official visit to India. 

Speaking at a face-to-face programme at Reporter's Club Nepal in the Capital, he said the government is committed to organising the elections within the stipulated time (January 21, 2018). 

Likewise, CPN-UML Secretary Pradip Gyawali said the constitution amendment proposal could not be passed without consultation with the UML. 

Ruling CPN (Maoist Centre) leader Ajaya Shankar Nayak however claimed that the proposal was brought in agreement with the UML
