Leaders flock to Shital Niwas to meet Prez
As political parties have failed to forge national consensus on government issue within the stipulated deadline of today as provided by the President, leaders of the major political forces- UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, CPN (UML) and United Madhesi Democratic Front (UDMF)- have flocked to Shital Niwas to request President Dr Yadav for extending the deadline. Maoist chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’, Congress President Sushil Koirala, UML Chairperson Jhalanath Khanal and UDMF leader Rajendra Mahato are attending the meeting with President. President Dr Yadav had made a call to the political parties on last Friday to recommend the Prime Minister candidate of national consensus with a deadline of seven days that expired today afternoon at 4 PM. Since political parties have failed to attained much-hyped national consensus, they have said that they will request the President to extend deadline.
