Kathmandu, Jan 28: Prime Minister and Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala has said the deadlock seen in the constitution writing would be settled through talks and dialogue.

Stating that the party has adopted flexibility on such disputed issues as the form of governance and the judicial system, he urged the UCPN (Maoist) and the Madhes-centric parties to backtrack from their issues.
Democracy is inevitable for peace, stability, law and order and development in the country, PM Koirala said, adding that they were working to orient the forces not subscribing to democracy also on the path of democracy.
