Kathmandu, October 6:
With only one day left for the summit talks with the Maoists, Prime minister Girija Prasad Koirala met President of Nepal Workers and Peasants Party (NWPP), Narayan Man Bijukchhe, at the Prime Ministerâ€™s residence in Baluwatar today.
The position of the king was among the several issues that were raised during the discussion.
Bijukchhe quoted Prime Minister Koirala as insisting that the main agenda would come under shadow if a referendum, to make the kingâ€™s position clear, was conducted.
Prime Minister Koiralaâ€™s party Nepali Congress (NC) has been insisting on elections to constituent assembly to make clear the position of the king while Communist Party of Nepal-UML, the Maoists and Bijukchheâ€™s party NWPP have been emphasising on a referendum.
â€œSuch issues would further complicate the situation and bring the main agenda of constituent assembly under shadow,â€ the NWPP president quoted Koirala as saying while talking to this daily.
The NWPP president also suggested Koirala to revive the local bodies by including the Maoistâ€™s local bodies.
