Nepal’s top three parties, United Marxist Leninist, Nepali Congress and United Marxist Leninist leaders held a rare meet on Sunday, August 26, 2012, and decided to hold a ‘serious meeting’ on Monday, August 27, 2012, it is reported.
Reports have it further, leaders held consensus to be important in that consensus between parties have become a must.
Agreed to have agreed? The word consensus must have been feeling ashamed.
Thus they agreed to hold series of such meetings in the days ahead at least to maintain cordial relations between the parties.
The meeting took place at the in Singhdurbar. Thanks it was not at Gokarna safari Resort.
“Beginning tomorrow we have decided to hold series of meetings to create favorable atmosphere to hold talks over contentious political issues. We need to quickly lift the country out of crisis”, said Minendra Rijal of Nepali Congress.
With Delhi’s support as usual?
“We found no magical solution today but I have to accept that we did something,” added Minendra. Perhaps they forget about the NOIDA potion.
“Where lay the problems between parties”, said Maoists leader Narayan Kaji and added, “This was the topic of discussion today. Beginning tomorrow we will hold discussions on various issues one by one. We have also decided that there will be no mudslinging between parties henceforth.”
“Since dissolution of Constituent Assembly there was no dialogue between parties. The beginning of talks is a positive signal”, also said Naryan Kaji.
Interestingly, the Indian Ambassador Jayant Babu was absent. He did not attend this meet. The leaders must have missed him.
