Bigwigs give up idea to hold talks in Dhuilkhel, will sit at Peace Ministry
N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU – The much talked-about three-party meeting slated secretly to be held at a Resort in Dhulikhel has been dropped down following reluctance of the Nepali Congress and CPN UML leaders.
Sources in the know-how informed that the meeting was slated to garner consensus on outstanding issues of constitution drafting including issues related to federalism and forms of governance.
The source claimed that the meeting was put off form the time being following denial of the UML and NC leaders to hold discussions on issues related to constitution drafting unless the technical details of army integration were sorted out and the PLAs were handed down to the Nepal Army.
However, they have agreed to sit for talks at 1 this afternoon at the Peace Ministry.
Meanwhile the meeting of the Army Integration Special Committee (AISC) has been summoned, the time remains elusive, for later today and is expected to hammer out issues including rank determination, selection committee, standards for integration, among others.
