UCPN-Maoist spokesperson Agni Sapkota said that Constituent Assembly (CA) was the only option to end the present political transition. He said those attempting to fish in the murky waters were active due to delay in polls date announcement. Likewise, Nepali Congress General Secretary Krishna Prasad Sitaula said the upcoming CA polls should be conducted by third week of November, as conducting polls in the Himalayan belt would be difficult if the date was delayed. Sitaula was of the view that erstwhile CA failed to draft the constitution due to communist parties' lobby for ethnic issues.
