KATHMANDU: The talks between the government and the National Muslim Struggle Alliance held at Singha Durbar, on Saturday have ended inconclusively.
Minister for Finance Barsha Man Pun said the political consensus on the Muslim community's demands could not be made in absence of government team coordinator Krishna Prasad Sitaula, hence it was postponed.
Pun expressed his confidence that the next meeting would forge consensus on the Muslim community's demands claiming the talks have taken positive line.
Another member of the team and Minister for Irrigation, Mahendra Prasad Yadav, majority of the demands put forth by the Muslim community leaders were reasonable but they still need to hold discussion with the senior leaders of the major political parties to reach the final decision.
Coordinator of the Alliance and lawmaker Sadrul Miyan Hak said though the talk with the government was positive, they need to hold discussion with the senior leaders of the political parties.
The alliance tabled 10-point demands with the talks team from the government's side and stressed for guaranteeing constitutional rights of the Muslim people in the new constitution.
