Biratnagar, August 30 :

Chairman of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party Pashupati Shumsher Rana has called on all constitutional forces in the country to stand united for the resolution of the crisis that he said is deepening. Speaking at a press conference organised today by the National Journalists’ Association, he stressed the need to bring the King and the political parties together for the resolution of the present crisis on the basis of values of democracy. Referring to the King’s statement yesterday that he is open for talks with the political parties, he said the statement was ‘significant’. “If the King and the political parties can come together to form the all-party government, it will pave the way for the Maoists to come to the negotiating table as well”.
