Day-II talks with UDMF end inconclusively

KATHMANDU: Talks between the three-party talks team and the United Democratic Madhesi Front ended inconclusively on Wednesday as well.

The talks ended inconclusively as the protesting alliance accused the government of not meeting conditions it had set for dialogues, according to the sources.

At today's meeting, the UDMF had put forth a 35-point charter of demands, seeking amendments to various provisions of the Constitution.

The formal talks between the UDMF and representatives of Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN-Maoist had begun yesterday.

On the discussion yesterday, the Madhesi negotiators had informed the three-party talks team that they would continue protests including the blockade at Indo-Nepal border points until their demands are met.


The three-party talks team did not come up with any concrete proposal on the demarcation of provincial boundaries, according to Laxman Lal Karna of Sadbhawana Party, who is one of the members of the UDMF talks team.

It has been learned that the three-party talks team, however, had proposed to resolve the issues of demarcation through federal commission and political agreement.
