The Constitution Amendment Bill (second amendment)-2073 is being tabled in the Legislature-Parliament today.

Minster for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Yagya Bahadur Thapa is scheduled to table the bill in a bid to bring on board the disgruntled Madhesh-centric political parties.

Prior to submitting the proposal, Minister Thapa will table the proposal for clause-wise discussion on the Bill. Thereafter, a proposal seeking amendment to Constitution Amendment Bill (second amendment)-2073 would be tabled. 

The Rastriya Janata Party (RJP), a union of six Madesh-centric political parties formed recently, had been protesting some disputed issues in the new constitution such as language, delineation of federal provinces and citizenship among others.
