KATHMANDU, July 10: CPN-UML leader Shankar Pokhrel has made it clear that there was not any gentlemen agreement with the CPN (Maoist-Centre) except the nine-point deal.
At an interaction organized by the Reporters' Club in the capital city Sunday, leader Pokhrel said at a time the present government was functioning smoothly by boosting relations with neighbours, and committing to national interests and public welfare, it was not good to think of its alternative.
On the occasion, Nepali Congress central member Minendra Rijal said Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML can't remain together in the government, so it was not possible to form national consensus government at present.
Although the NC is in opposition, it was together with the government on implementation of the constitution and reconstruction activities.
Similarly, CPN (Maoist-Centre) leader Ram Karki said the formation of consensus government was a must to resolve national problems and effectively implement the constitution.
General Secretary of the Sadbhavana Party Manish Suman said the Madhesi front could support the national consensus government. RSS
