Dialogue with govt today
Nov 9, 2015-
The government and the agitating Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha are set to sit for talks on Monday.
Morcha leaders, who had threatened to boycott dialogue following violent clashes between police and protesters in Birgunj last week, agreed to resume stalled dialogue after a meeting with the government’s talks team on Sunday.
Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Kamal Thapa held a discussion with Morcha leaders after the House meeting on Sunday. Thapa tweeted that the talks would be held at 1pm in Singha Durbar.
Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party General Secretary Sarbendra Nath Shukla and Sadbhawana Party Co-chair Laxman Lal Karna talked to the team.
Karna, however, said it would be more of an informal meeting. “We have demanded official clarification on the Birgunj incident. Morcha would take further decision based on the justification he [Thapa] provides,” said Karna.
