KATHMANDU: As the agitating political parties remained adamant to their stances of protesting against the announcement of poll by the Chief Justice led government, the High Level Political Committee (HLPC), the cross-party task-force formed to assist the Chief Justice led election government, has urged the agitating political parties to come for talks.
Monday’s meeting of the HLPC, appealed to the fringe parties including the CPN-Maoist to come to the table for dialogue, according to the UCPN-Maoist Vice Chairman Narayan Kaji Shrestha.
The meeting also decided to urge all political parties not to enforce bandh, saying it creates negative impact on daily lives, said Shrestha. The meeting also expressed its concerns over the health of President Ram Baran Yadav and wished for his speedy recovery.
The meeting has urged the dissident parties including Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist to desist from calling strikes that affects normal life of general public.
Emerging from the meeting, Nepali Congress Vice President Ram Chandra Poudel said it was indispensable to hold talks with the disgruntled parties as there was no alternative to holding election to resolve the crisis facing the country.
It has been learnt that NC senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba briefed the leaders about his India visit at the meeting. The HLPC has long been saying that they would hold discussion with agitating parties but they fail to materialize their commitment. There are rumors that the major political parties especially UCPN-Maoist want to reach to the helm of power after making the November poll failure.
