Despite its latest decision to vacate the cantonments by April 12, the Army Integration Special Committee (AISC) remains undecided about the modality of the integration of the Maoist combatants.
A meeting of the Special Committee, which is headed by the Prime Minister, held on Sunday to finalise the integration action plan prepared by its secretariat ended inconclusively.
However, government's chief secretary and AISC spokesperson Madhav Ghimire said the discussion was positive and that next meeting to be held Monday evening would decide on the action plan.
Finance Minister and AISC member Barshaman Pun said the committee needed some time to hold detailed discussions on the key points of the draft action plan before finalising it.
Friday's AISC meeting had decided to hand over the combatants and their weapons to the Nepal Army and carry out another round of assessment to bring down the number of PLA members choosing integration.
As per the seven-point agreement, up to 6500 combatants will be integrated in the NA. nepalnews.com
