Ram Baran Yadav Puspa Kamal Dahal

KATHMANDU: Following the political wrangling over the formation of the new government under the leadership of the sitting Chief Justice or independent figure, the President has started separate parleys with the bigwigs of major political parties to encourage them to immediately end the protracted deadlock by announcing the fresh date for CA elections.

President Dr Ram Baran Yadav held discussions with UCPN (Maoist) Supremo Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ this morning.

During the meeting, Prachanda urged the President to unlock the deadlock by helping to form the CJ-led government as proposed by the Maoist party, as it was the best alternative at this time.

After the holding discussions with the UCPN (Maoist) chief, the President invited NC top gun Sushil Koirala at Shital Niwas to consult the possible ways to form the new government with better alternative.

On the occasion, Koirala is learnt to have shared that political leadership was the best one to end the present stalemate and the Maoists were conspiring by floating a series of alternative to prolong its stay in power.

Similarly, the President consulted with CPN (UML) Chairman Jhalanath Khanal and other leaders, and urged the UML leaders to find a meeting point to crack the political nuts.

During the meeting, the UML leaders ruled out the UCPN (Maoist) proposal to form the CJ-led government and alleged the Maoists of conspiring.
