KATHMANDU, Sept 5: Nepali Congress (NC) President Sushil Koirala on Wednesday morning called on UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal at latter’s residence in Lazimpat.
It has been learnt that the duo discussed the latest political development and ways to end the ongoing political deadlock in the meeting.
During the meeting, Maoist Chairman Dahal proposed Koirala for the reinstatement of the dissolved Constituent Assembly (CA) to end the current political stalemate. In response, NC Prez Koirala rejected Dahal’s proposal. Koirala further said that the issue of CA reinstatement or fresh elections could be decided only after formation of the national consensus government.
Koirala met Dahal a day after latter put blame on NC that formation of a national consensus government has been delayed due to failure of NC to pick its prime ministerial candidate.
