Madhes-centric parties were reluctant to sit for talks: DPM Thapa

Biratnagar, May 13: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Kamal Thapa has the Madhes-centric parties were reluctant to sit for talks with the government to seek a way out to the problem, urging the dissenting parties to realise the fact that lobbying for unnecessary demands would create political instability in the country.
Talking to the journalists at the Biratnagar Airport on today, DPM Thapa said it seemed that a High-Level Political Committee is already there to deal with the issues of fresh demarcation of federal provinces and talks and dialogues among the political parties were needed to facilitate it to carry out assigned task.

Minister Thapa who also holds the portfolio of the Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development said the government is confident of holding the local poll within the mid-December.

Stating that the major political parties protesting the government’s plan to hold the election was not appropriate, he said the government was ready to hold discussions on the matter with the oppositions.

Refuting the rumours of government change, he said the incumbent government would continue until the holding of the parliamentary election.
