No headway in talks between govt and Baidya's alliance
The talks between the government and the 33-party alliance led by Mohan Baidya's CPN-Maoist on Monday ended without any progress.
The meeting held at the Peace Fund Secretariat in Singha Durbar, both sides reiterated their respective positions. Emerging from the meeting, CPN-M secretary Dev Gurung said his party stressed that a roundtable conference of all parties should find a way out of the crisis and asked the government to play the role of a facilitator for such a meet.
While Gurung said there would be further talks, no date for another meeting was set by the today's meeting.
On the other hand, the government talks team maintained that an agreement on postponing the elections and resignation of the government as demanded by the 33-party front is not possible and that November 19 election is its bottomline. Nepalnews.com
