KATHMANDU: UCPN-Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal held talks with Special Envoy of UN Secretary General Ban Ki- Moon, Samuel Tamrat, today.
In the meeting held today at Dahal's residence at Lajimpat in the capital, latest political development and the causes behind the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly (CA) were discussed.
During the meeting, Tamrat said it was sad that constitution was not drafted and Nepal's fortune should be decided through the consensus of political parties, according to Dahal's aide Shiva Khakurel.
On the occasion, Dahal told Tamrat that the new constitution could not be drafted as there was no agreement on federalism among parties and the country could not get any outlet as some parties did not agree to constitution with federalism with identity.
He also said although UCPN-Maoist had displayed maximum flexibility for drafting the constitution through CA, problems arose as other parties were not ready and that the CA was dissolved.
The journey ahead will be decided as per the consensus and there is no other alternative, said Dahal.
On the occasion, Tamrat requested Dahal to move the country ahead by forging a fresh consensus among parties.
They also held talks on army integration and peace process.
