'Federal Alliance finds govt proposal for dialogues positive'

LAHAN: Manish Kumar Suman, General Secretary of the protesting Sadbhawana Party, a constituent of the protesting Federal Alliance, said the letter received from the government on Sunday for resumption of negotiations had been viewed in a positive light.

In a briefing with journalists this morning, Suman said the Alliance would hold a meeting and come up with a substantive standpoint regarding the government proposal.

The leader said the Alliance would remain prepared for relevant and result-oriented dialogues.

"The Alliance wants an outlet through dialogues and negotiations, the agitation prolonged because the government is not serious," he stressed.

Suman added that the Alliance was waiting for the government's preliminary response on its 11-point demand including treatment of agitators injured in the Madhes uprising, martyrs' status to the deceased and withdrawal of cases against the demonstrators.

"We will sit for dialogues as soon as the government comes up with the statement" he shared.
