Kathmandu, Oct 31 (UNI) Nepalese Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala today urged his party leaders to strive for an early solution to the political deadlock in the Himalayan nation.
Speaking at a meeting of the Nepali Congress(NC) leaders at his official residence, the party President urged the top brass to continue to strive for an agreement among the parties even if the Maoists motions were put to vote.
Mr Koirala asked Minister for Peace and Reconstruction and party vice president Ram Chandra Poudel and party leaders Dr Prakash Sharan Mahat and Mahesh Acharya to try to hold parleys with other parties to find a meeting point on the deadlock pertaining to the Maoist motions.
He further directed the party leaders to end the stalemate through voting if a dialogue does not solve the purpose.
This directive hints at softening of NC's stance.
Yesterday, NC said if the Maoists do not withdraw their proposals registered at Parliament to declare the country a republic and introduction of proportionate representation system, it would vote against the proposals.
It urged CPN-Maoist to withdraw its proposals to create an environment of trust for the elections.
