KATHMANDU, March 5: A meeting held on Monday between Left Alliance and Federal Socialist Forum Nepal (FSFN) ended inconclusively.
The meeting was called to forge agreement on the issues related to participation in the government and amendment to the Constitution.
According to UML leader Subas Nembang, the meeting ended with a positive. “The issue has been narrowed down. We are close to consensus,” said he. However, he could not explain the reason why the deal is getting delayed.
FSFN General Secretary Ramsahaya Yadav said the meeting focused on the participation in the government and amendment to the Constitution. “Nonetheless the meeting ended without reaching consensus.” “We will probably hold decisive talks tomorrow,” said he.
According to Baluwatar sources, no deal has been struck between the Left Alliance and FSFN. FSFN has been demanding three ministers including deputy prime minister and one state minister while Left Alliance is ready to only offer two ministers and one state minister.
