Prime Minister (PM) Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba and CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli have met at Baluwatar Tuesday morning.
Leaders of the three largest political parties talked for almost one and a half hours but the top leaders did not reveal what they discussed during the meeting.
PM Dahal’s secretariat, however, claimed that they discussed bills tabled in the House, and PM Dahal sought suggestions for the government’s policies and programs, and the budget.
“PM convened the meeting to discuss the bills about the Constitutional Council, transitional justice, and money laundering among others presented in the House,” PM’s secretariat stated. “PM sought suggestions for the government’s policies and programs and the budget.
The meeting has been held as the fake Bhutanese refugees scam rocks the country’s politics. CPN-UML Secretary Top Bahadur Rayamajhi and son of UML Vice-chairman Ram Bahadur Thapa are absconding after issue of arrest warrants.
Names of Nepali Congress (NC) leader and former home minister Bal Krishna Khand, his wife and NC lawmaker Manju Khand and NC lawmaker Arzu Rana Deuba—wife of NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba—have also been dragged in the scam.
