Tripartite talks put off as Madhesi Front leaders do not show up

The top leaders of Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN-Maoist among other ruling coaliton members also agreed to resolve the issues regarding the demarcation of federal units on the basis of political consultations and consensus within three months.

A political mechanism would be formed for this end, according to their decision.

Meanwhile, the parties urged the agitating UDMF to end their protests and seek the solution through talks.

The meeting scheduled for Wednesday was put off citing lack of enough homework on the part of the government.

Earlier today, the ruling CPN-UML held a meeting of its powerful Standing Committee to discuss the agenda of the purported three-party meeting and the tripartite talks.
