Gachhadar urges agitating parties to sit for talks

Biratnagar, May 16

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Physical Planning and Construction Bijay Kumar Gachhadar today urged the agitating Madhesi and other parties to shun their agitation and come to the table for dialogue.

Gachhadar further held that the government was ever ready to address their demands.

Talking to mediapersons at Biratnagar airport, Gachhadar held that disrupting the street and picketing Singha Durbar would not help them attain their rights.

Stating that the agitation would only aggravate the problem, Gachhadar asked the agitating parties to find a solution through talks.

Informing that the government was preparing to hold civic polls, Gachhadar argued that the agitating parties should participate in the local election to increase their access among the people in the grassroots.

He flayed the main opposition Nepali Congress for airing remarks against the civic polls.

Gachhadar argued that national consensus was indispensable for implementation of the new statute and reconstruction of physical infrastructures ravaged by the deadly quake of April 2015.

“It is very important that we form a national unity government even for a short time to complete the major tasks.”
