Kathmandu, November 4
Coalition partners CPN-UML and Unified CPN-Maoist today held consultations with main opposition Nepali Congress on bringing a new bill regarding formation of reconstruction authority and addressing the concerns raised by agitating by Madhesi parties.
This was the first three-party meeting after formation of the new government. The meeting was held at Prime Minister KP Oli’s residence in Baluwatar this evening.
“The government has begun consultations with the NC on bringing a new bill regarding formation of a reconstruction authority to expedite reconstruction works,” said PM’s press advisor Pramod Dahal.
As the related bill tabled by the erstwhile NC-led government is gathering dust in the Parliament due to objection, mainly from UML, the government is preparing to bring a new bill.
The leaders also discussed the issues of agitating Madheshi communities, according to Dahal.
PM Oli, NC leaders Sushil Koirala and Ram Chandra Paudel and UML leaders Madhav Kumar Nepal and Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Agni Prasad Kharel and UCPN-M leader Pushpa Kamal Dahal participated in the meeting.
