With two-third ethnic, madhesi lawmakers at the back, Maoist, Morcha deny consensus talks

KATHMANDU: Taking advantage of the recent tilt of two-third majority of madheshi and janjati lawmakers from even Congress and UML, the Maoist and Morcha gave up efforts to resolve disputes in consensus.

In Friday’s meeting, both of them proposed to settle differences on state restructuring and forms of governance through voting in the CA.

They had proposed to vote between 10-state model and 6 state model recommended by High Level Commission on State Restructuring and 14 state model recommended by the thematic committee of the CA.

However Congress and UML denied to adopt the majority based process rendering the meet inconclusive. Maoist Vice Chairman Naryan Kaji Shrestha claimed the meeting remained inconclusive after Congress and UML denied to adopt regular procedures to resolve disputes.

He claimed that both parties should bear the responsibility of not promulgating the constitution.
