Kathmandu, 7th February, 2015 : Vice-president of the Nepali Congress Ram Chandra Paudel has urged the opposition parties’ alliance led by the Unified CPN (Maoist) to sit for talks quitting the protests.
Speaking at an interaction organized by the Reporters Club at his residence, Bohoragoun, in the capital today, he said all from the respective places should wok in unison to promulgate the new constitution from the Constituent Assembly (CA).
“They (the opposition parties in alliance) have gone out of the CA process. Constitution is for the sake of the national prosperity. The ruling parties are ready to sit for political talks with open heart,” he said.
“Quit the protest programmes for the sake of people and the country,” he urged the opposition.
He claimed the ruling parties have not breached the Comprehensive Peace Accord (CPA) and the Interim Constitution. According to him, the consensus efforts went in vain all of a sudden though the political parties had settled most of the disputed issues on January 19.
Vice-President Poudel further said the nine-point concept forwarded by the Nepali Congress was as per the spirit of the CPA and the Interim Constitution.
“Prime Minister Sushil Koirala is ready for making an official appeal to hold talks for political consensus and end the current political deadlock,” NC Vice-president Poudel said.
The ruling parties as he said were ready to be flexible while reiterating that they could not make any compromise against federalism, democracy, and the republic system.
