KATHMANDU, APRIL 28
The government has withdrawn cases of 120 accused in 15 cases related to the Terai-Madhesh movement, addressing demands of the Janata Samajwadi Party-Nepal.
The government had made this decision following several rounds of talks with the JSP-N.
Government Spokesperson, Minister of Communications and Information Technology Parbat Gurung, said at a presser that the government has started withdrawing the cases related to movement and those related to Nepal Communist Party-led by Netra Bikram Chand.
The decision was made in response to the demands of Mahantha Thakur and Rajendra Mahato faction of the JSP, who, of late, have been in talks with the government.
Minister Gurung further stated the cases were withdrawn in line with existing laws and Constitution.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, following split of the erstwhile Nepal Communist Party (NCP), has been engaging the JSP in talks in a bid to forge an alliance with the party to save the government from toppling.
Parties in opposition, including CPN- Maoist Centre -- who are yet to withdraw support to the Oli government -- have been exercising plans to file a no trust motion against the incumbent government and replace it.
