During the meeting held at UML chairman Jhala Nath Khanal’s residence at Dallu of the capital this morning, the top leaders of the three major national parties again discussed the major political agenda – whether they should agree on hold election to get fresh mandate of the people or reinstate the already dissolved Constituent Assembly (CA).
However, the discussion was not fruitful as the meeting ended inconclusively due to top leaders of the three parties refusing to budge on the respective stance on the issue of formation of a national consensus government to end the current political stalemate first.
The three-party meeting comes a day after President Ram Baran Yadav had held two-hour long discussions with top leaders of the three parties including the Madhesi alliance and urged them to give top priority to forging consensus on key issues of contention among them and come up with a clear roadmap to take the peace process to a successful conclusion. He also made it clear that he will approve the ordinances forwarded by the government only if major political parties agree on fresh election to the political crisis facing the country. nepalnews.com
