February 25, Kathmandu- Leaders of the Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) Dahal-Nepal faction and Nepal Socialist's Party have discussed current political issues.
A discussion was held between CPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda', Madhav Kumar Nepal, and Nepal Socialist's Party Chairman Mahanta Thakur, senior leader Rajendra Mahato and executive committee member Rajendra Shrestha at the party's central office in Parisdanda on Thursday.
A senior leader of the party Rajendra Mahato said that the Dahal-Nepal faction has proposed to cooperate in the coming days. He also said that the NSP leaders had requested to clarify which is the party of the Dahal-Nepal faction.
"They have proposed to form a government," he said. "We have asked you which party you are. We need a party in the parliamentary system. We have said that it should be made clear first."
He also reminded that the NSP leaders had repeatedly betrayed their agreement. He said that his party's MP Resham Chaudhary and other leaders were still living in captivity and would continue to fight for their release.
Following the Supreme Court's decision to reinstate the House of Representatives, the leaders of the CPN-Dahal-Nepal faction have intensified political talks to balance power in the coming days.
