Kathmandu: Mar 18: (CMC)   Nepal will plunge into a catastrophe if the Constitution is not drafted by the May 27 deadline, former prime minister and senior leader of CPN-UML Madhav Kumar Nepal has warned. 
During a press meet at Sindhupalchowk district in the east of Kathmandu yesterday, Nepal asked the the ruling UCPN-Maoist to expedite the process of integrating former Maoist rebels into the Army for early conclusion of the peace process, saying that the Constitution cannot be drafted without completing the peace process. 
"The country will plunge into a bigger catastrophe if the Constitution could not be drafted by the stipulated time frame," he warned.  

The task of drafting the new Constitution could be accomplished within the extended deadline of May 27 if the Maoists show sincerity in concluding the peace process, he pointed out. 
But, he said that the Maoist combatants should not be represented in the Nepal Army as demanded by them.
