According to police, he entered Kathmandu Valley through Nagdhunga check-post and reached Kalanki around noon.

Chand will reach the City Hall (Sabha Griha) to address a special gathering at around 2:00 pm, which will jointly be addressed by him and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. Complete details of the agreement reached between the two sides yesterday will be made public by Chand and Prime Minister Oli at the programme.

According to the three-point deal, the CPN will resolve all their political issues through dialogue, conduct all their political activities in peaceful manner, and the government will rescind all restrictions on CPN, release all arrested cadres and 'release' pending cases on the party.
