PM reaches out to Dahal for accord
Jan 26, 2015-
Prime Minister Sushil Koirala on Monday made a telephone call to UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and urged him to sit for talks. Dahal is said to have asked the PM to bring out a concrete proposal for consensus.
A meeting of the ruling parties had assigned the PM to hold talks with the opposition parties in order to seek consensus on the key issues of the new constitution.
According to aides to Koirala and Dahal, the Maoist leader made it clear to the PM that it would be difficult for the opposition to come to the negotiating table until the ruling parties corrected their decision to move ahead with the majority process in the CA.
Koirala reportedly told Dahal that he would discuss the issue with the ruling parties, which have said the efforts at consensus on the disputes and the voting process will go simultaneously.
