The talks between the government and National Muslim Struggle Alliance (NMSA) held on Saturday ended without conclusion after Muslim leaders demanded presence of senior leaders in the talks.
The talks held at the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction in Singha Durbar could not arrive at consensus as the government could not present it’s official position on agitating Muslims’ demands, it is learnt.
Deputy Prime Minister Krishna Prasad Sitaula, who leads the three-member government talks team was not present in the talks.
Finance Minister and member of the government talks team Barshaman Pun said that the talks ended on positive note and next round of talks would forge agreement in the presence of minister Sitaula.
The Muslim alliance has been demanding guarantee of the Muslim community’s rights in the new constitution. nepalnews.com
