Prachanda also informed the lawmakers that the draft of the proposal was at its final stage.

He, however, admitted that dialogues held among the major parties so far had not been much fruitful in this regard; hence, the government was doing further homework to make the discussions more fruitful.

The government has accorded top priority to conclude the Constitution amendment process in consensus of the main opposition CPN-UML and agitating parties and groups, including Madhesis, Tharus and Janajatis, he said.

"I want to assure you," he said, addressing the disgruntled groups, "Your genuine concerns will be addressed."

The Madhesi parties and ethnic minority groups have been pressing the government to amend the Constitution at the earliest for addressing their demands relating to re-demarcation of provincial boundary and other relating to more rights and representation to the marginalised communities.

The Madhesis, mostly of Indian origin, had led a months- long deadly agitation that also witnessed a crippling blockade of key border trade points with India.
