Bigwigs agree to combine both bills on TJM in a single one

incorporating the issues of bill on truth and reconciliation, and bill on disappearance.

Following the agreement, the government is likely to withdraw two separate bills tabled in the Legislature-Parliament.

A meeting of the top leaders of the UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN (UML) took a decision to this effect today.

After emerging from the meeting, NC leader Ram Sharan Mahat said agreement was held as single bill was sufficient to address the problems of both issues in the new context. He was of the opinion that the new commission to be formed after the approval from the House would be powerful.

Similarly, Chairman of CPN (UML) Jhalanath Khanal said that single bill and single commissions was enough to address the problems created during the wartime.

It is learnt that the leaders are univocal regarding the bill on disappearance while leaders are divided over the issue of whether or not giving amnesty in the accidents occurred during the insurgency. RSS
