Prez, parties meeting underway
The meeting between the President Dr Ram Baran Yadav and top leaders of the major 4 political forces- UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, CPN (UMl), United Madhesi Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF)- is underway at the President’s official residence Shital Niwas.
President Yadav, who has found him at an odd position between the government-opposition conflict on budget issue, has summoned a meeting with the main ruling and opposition parties for tomorrow morning to find a solution for the crisis including ongoing budget rows.
The government had stalled the plan of bringing the budget ordinance on Monday following the President Yadav’s request to the Finance Minister until consensus is forged among the political parties.
The president has been holding such joint as well as one-to-one meetings with the leaders of the ruling and opposition parties to exert pressure upon them to forge the national consensus as earliest.
