CPN (UML) General Secretary Ishwor Pokharel has reiterated that the UML would never assist in amending the constitution that has no 'relevance'. 

Speaking at a press conference in Kaski, he said the UML was firm against an amendment to some provisions related to the increment of the number of local levels in Province 2 and naturalised citizenship and language. 

He however said his party was ready to hold a discussion with the disgruntled Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal for a 'relevant' amendment to the constitution, saying the constitution is a progressive consensus document.
