Govt won't go to Tarai for talks, says Gyawali

GULMI: CPN-UML Secretary Pradeep Gyawali said that the government would not go to the Tarai region for holding talks as demanded by the agitating parties.

At a news conference in Gulmi today organised by the party district committee, he said that holding dialogues in Tarai was only an emotional condition put forth by the protesting parties and it was not acceptable to the government.

However, there was no problem for the government to reach out to the Tarai, he maintained.

He termed that the unrest in Tarai was disharmonising social unity, national integrity and was motivated by extremist thoughts.

The UML leader further said that the Tarai-centric parties were indulging in a crisis that they invited.

The protest could go beyond the control of Tarai parties if they did not use their conscience in resolving the issues on time, he warned.
