Altogether eleven fringe parties boycotted the CA meeting, expressing displeasure over the seven-province model proposed in the final version of constitution.

Presenting the draft, CDC Chairman Sitaula said constitution drafting process has reached a final stage and asked all the dissident parties to remain in the CA process and express their displeasure.

As Madhes Janadhikar Forum-Loktantrik led by Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar also boycotted CA meeting on Sunday, now all Madhes-based regional parties have stood against the draft constitution.

Deliberations on the final version of constitution will begin on Wednesday.

After the deliberations among CA members, lawmakers will register their amendment proposal on the final version of constitution.
