KATHMANDU, Feb 19: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal is scheduled to hold another round of talks with leaders of Madhes-based parties in a while.

According to Sadbhavana Party General Secretary Manish Suman, the PM has invited top leaders of United Democratic Madhesi Front and the meeting is scheduled to begin at  7 pm today.

According to Suman, the Madhes-based parties are holding a meeting before meeting the PM at Baluwatar.

Earlier on Saturday, PM Dahal had proposed of taking forward constitution amendment bill and the election process simultaneously but the UDMF had threatened of starting fresh protest programs if the government declares election dates without completing the process of amendment.

However, a meeting between the top leaders of ruling coalition on Sunday morning had agreed to declare election dates and consult the Election Commission on this regard.
