Federal Alliance demands commitment from Nepal govt. for talks

Kathmandu : The disgruntled Federal Alliance on Thursday demanded strong commitment from Prime Minister K.P Sharma Oli- led government to hold further talks.

In a meeting held in Sanghiya Samajbadi Forum’s office today, the agitating body demanded a reliable promise from the government along with the dedication to address the 26 point demands presented by the alliance.

Condemning the government for not addressing the alliance in the letter inviting for talks, they said that Oli’s letter should be addressed to the alliance rather than to the Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha (SLMM).

In a bid to resolve the Tarai crisis, Oli had invited the agitating parties for talks.

However, the Terai Madhesi Democratic Party, Forum Democratic, Nepal Sadhvawana Party and other Madhesi parties are willing to go for the talk saying the protest and talks have been staged under Madhesi Morcha’s lead.

Oli had sent a letter last month inviting the Madhesi Morcha for talks. However, the letter has now become the main reason for the misunderstanding and division inside the alliance.

While the Madhesi Morcha leaders want to pursue the talk if government is willing to talk over the 11 point demands, the alliance leaders demand a discussion over the 26 point demands and a strong commitment from the government.

But, despite the division seen over the letter and the points to be discussed, the 30-party Federal Alliance have continued their relay hunger strike in the heart of Kathmandu.(ANI)
