KATHMANDU, Dec 25: A meeting between the leaders of Rashtriya Janata Party-Nepal and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is underway at the Prime Minister’s official residence, Baluwatar.

The meeting comes at a time when the RJP is hinting at withdrawing its support to the Oli-led government saying that the government has failed to meet their demands.

The party has blamed the government for failing to amend the constitution and withdraw the cases filed against party's cadres at the court who were arrested during the Madhesh movement.

Chairman of the RJP Presidium, Rajendra Mahato, said that the meeting is being convened at the request of Prime Minister Oli.

Mahato said that they are in the mood to withdraw the support to the government and launch fresh round of protest as the government turned deaf ears on their demands.

"We are holding decisive talks with the prime minister today. We will launch fresh round of protest if our demands are not met," he said.
