KATHMANDU: President Dr Ram Baran Yadav on Thursday morning has held a meeting with the top-notch leaders of the four political parties – Unified CPN Maoist, Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and United Democratic Madesi Front – at Sheetal Niwas in Maharajgunj.
In the meeting President Yadav has urged the parties to forge consensus on one of the options – election or revival of the Constituent Assembly – at the earliest, hinting them that he would not approve the ordinances submitted by the government without consensus among the parties.
The top leaders who were present in the meeting assured President Yadav that they would arrive at consensus on either of the issues within two weeks, sources at Sheetal Niwas said.
President Yadav had rejected two ordinances before the government resubmitted three ordinances on last Tuesday.
In a bid to press for consensus among the political parties, President Dr Ram Baran Yadav has been expediting his political activities of late.
President Yadav has been expressing concerns over the political deadlock with no signs of an outlet even three months after the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly.
A three party-meeting took place at ICC in New Baneshwor yesterday while the Special Committee meeting had taken place on Tuesday to forge consensus among the political parties.THT
