The Federal Republican Front (FRF), led by main opposition party in the parliament, UCPN (Maoist), has given a 24-hour ultimatum to (the major ruling parties) Nepali Congress and CPN-UML, seeking an implementation of the four point agreement, on Tuesday.

In a meeting held at the parliamentary party office of the UCPN (Maoist), the front established that there would protest strongly if the NC and UML failed to implement the agreement.

According to the front, the protests would be held in the parliament and on streets.

The co-chair of Sadbhawana Party, Lakshman Lal Karna said the Front has decided to demand that all the parties associated with the FRF be allowed to sit in the parliament as the opposition. They also demanded that the tax increment on vehicles with Indian number plates be withdrawn.

The demands will be brought to Legislature-Parliament's attention on Tuesday's assembly, and if their demands are not met, the proceeding of the Parliament will be obstructed from Wednesday.

UCPN (Maoist) had earlier walked out of the three-party meeting held at the PM's official residence, on Sunday.

In the three-party meet, the major ruling parties, NC and UML, had said that no mechanism could exist outside the Constituent Assembly and that the four-point agreement could no longer be justified.
