Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister KC clarified that there is no justification for a three-tier government unless the people who are tired of poverty are transformed. He emphasized the need to be vigilant as regressive could raise their heads when they fail to prove the meaning of federalism.
Pointing to former Prime Minister Oli, Chief Minister KC remarked that the element of trying to draft the constitution would be defeated by itself.
