CPDCC Chair Dr Bhattarai continues consulations with leaders
Kathmandu, Nov 15: Constitutional Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee Chairman Dr Baburam Bhattarai continued consultation with senior politicians on Saturday as well at a time when consensus on contentious issues of the constitution has proven elusive.
Dr Bhattarai held talks with CPN (UML) Chairman KP Sharma Oli at a hotel in Lalitpur.
The CPDCC Chair stressed on agreement to move ahead in constitution making process and for immediate resolution on contentious issues, informed his personal secretary Bishwodeep Pandey.
Dr Bhattarai emphasized on reaching an agreement before the meeting of the Committee. He was of the opinion that a constitution issued without agreement among the stakeholders of the 12-point agreement would leave the peace process incomplete and continue instability in the country.
On the occasion, UML Chair Oli said his party was prepared for a consensus on disputed issues, informed his personal secretary Ramesh Acharya.
Likewise, CPDCC Chairman Dr Bhattarai also held a telephone conversation with Nepali Congress senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba.
He apprised the NC leader Deuba of the necessity to reach an agreement in the Committee's upcoming meeting scheduled for 17 November by leaving aside the individual and partisan interests. RSS
