Kathmandu, Sept 19: Nepali Congress president, Sher Bahadur Deuba, said on Thursday that Nepal's constitution based on democratic values was inclusive.

Speaking on the concluding day of the fourth session of the federal parliament, NC President Deuba also expressed best wishes to all Nepalis on the occasion of the Dashain, Tihar and Chhath festivals. 

He, however, said that the government was misusing authority instead of serving the people and country.

He also said that the performance of the government functioning on two-thirds majority proved that it was unsuccessful.

"Undemocratic bills have the role behind growing despair among people. Against the principle of separation of power and spirit of the constitution, the government is interfering the judiciary and human rights commission," he accused.

The government activities in terms of development and good governance were snail paced, and the corruption cases rising, he added.
He made it elaborate that the efforts to suppress citizen's fundamental rights, harassing and sacking journalists and employees based on political faith were worrying.

The former Prime Minister blamed the government that it was feeble to implement constitution ensuring its acceptability, maintain balanced foreign policy, boost peace and security situation. He further accused the ruling party cadres of attacking NC Banke President Kiran Koirala.
