Talking to journalists after issuing the notice of House meeting postponement today, Speaker Gharti said, "The leaders have gradually softened themselves following the Supreme Court decision. The hardened stances that were seen among the parties before had disappeared. The mood is one of 'let us all come to a compromise' and the court verdict has created a positive environment."
