However, the UCPN (M) and Madhesi Morcha leaders, who met in Baluwatar, have agreed that the coalition should remain in power to hold elections in the future. Leaders have decided to hold talks with opposition parties to convince them to allow the government to pass the annual budget, Minister for Information and Communications Raj Kishore Yadav told mediapersons.
The government has only passed one-third of its annual budget through an ordinance. The government needs to get the full-fledged budget by mid-November. The parties need to discuss the budget issue with the president, who has been rejecting ordinances forwarded by the government, said Tarai-Madhes Loktantrik Party chief Mahanta Thakur.
The meeting comes a day after former chief justices told PM Baburam Bhattarai that reviving the dissolved constitution-making body, as being pursued by the UCPN (M), was not possible. Nepalnews.com
