KATHMANDU: Talks held between the Government and agitators pitching for undivided far-west on Saturday ended without making any headway.
The talks that took place at the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction in Singha Durbar ended inconclusively when the agitating side turned down the government talks team coordinator Deputy Prime Minister Krishna Sitoula's request to find an outlet to the problems by putting off all the protest programmes.
The talks between the sides could not go ahead after the agitating side said their protest would continue till their demands were met.
Emerging out of the meeting, coordinator Sitoula said he would present the demands put forth by agitators in the meeting of major political parties, adding he has not been delegated authority to assure anything in concrete.
He informed that the talks with stirring side are on and resolution to the problem would be explored through top leaders' meeting.
Nepali Congress (NC) Kanchanpur District President Bahadur Singh Thapa, on behalf of agitating side, commented that the dialogue could not yield any result blaming the government talks team was focused on informal chitchat rather than on addressing their demands.
He also expressed the confidence that the top leaders' meeting would address their genuine demand of undivided far-west.
