All-party meeting called by PM Deuba cancelled
KATHMANDU: An all-party meeting called by Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba will not take place today.
Government spokesperson and Minister for Communication and Information Technology Gyanendra Bahadur Karki said that the Prime Minister has not called the all-party meeting. Earlier on Friday, some leaders of the ruling coalition and the PM’s Secretariat had said that Prime Minister Deuba had called the all-party meeting for today.
It has been said that the meeting may have been cancelled after the main opposition CPN-UML decided not to attend the meeting.
The meeting was supposed to take place at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Baluwatar at 11 am.
The PM’s Secretariat said that the Prime Minister had called the meeting to discuss the local level elections.
PM Deuba, who is also the President of the Nepali Congress, had held a discussion with the party leaders on Friday evening before calling the all-party meeting.
