Nepal needs a new political force to combat corruption, India’s Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Ashutosh said on Saturday.
Speaking at an interaction programme in Kathmandu with the reporters, Ashutosh said a new force like his party can reduce corruption in Nepal.
Ashutosh presented his party, which won an astonishing victory in the recently concluded Delhi assembly elections on the back of an anti-graft movement, as an example of success against corruption and asked the people of Nepal to launch a “peaceful movement of their own to combat corruption”.
The journalist-turned-politician also requested the Nepali political leaders to forge consensus on the disputed issues of the new constitution.
He said that the Nepalese parties should hold serious discussions on disputed issues like the number of provinces and form of governance.
A minimum common understanding could be reached among the parties to resolve the disputed issues, he suggested.
“Nepal itself should draw a roadmap in federalism, secularism among others,” he said.
The two-year-old Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) controls the 70-member strong Delhi state legislature and has four members in the Lok Sabha.
