Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai on Sunday assured that the preliminary draft of new constitution would be prepared by November 30, the deadline for promulgation of the constitution.

Reading out a speech prepared in Maithali language at a programme organised by the Mithila-Madhesh State Committee on the occasion of Chhath festival in Janakpur this afternoon, he claimed that the Bilateral Investment Protection and Promotion Agreement (BIPPA) with India was in the interest of Nepal and it will help bring down the increasing trade deficit between Nepal and India.

He further said that the political parties were close to reaching consensus regarding the remaining tasks of the ongoing constitution drafting and peace processes, adding that contentious issues in the army integration would be resolved soon.

The speech by PM Bhattarai in Maithili was greeted with much applause by the crowd of mostly Maithili speakers.

The prime minister’s gesture was similar to the speech he gave in Nepal Bhasa to a largely Newar gathering on the occasion of Nepal Sambat.
