PMO denies any deal with New Delhi

Kathmandu, December 5

The government today refuted media reports that the government had agreed on a plan with India to resolve the current crisis in the country.

Some online news portals today claimed that Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Kamal Thapa , while in New Delhi earlier this week, had inked a four-point deal to resolve the constitutional issues raised by Madhesi parties.

“Nothing is agreed in New Delhi as claimed in the reports,” PM KP Sharma Oli’s Press Adviser Pramod Dahal told The Himalayan Times.

He, however, said DPM Thapa had shared with the Indian government the views of the government on issues raised by Madhesi parties.

Sources said, Thapa had told Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj that efforts were being made to address the concerns of agitating Madhes-based parties.
