Kathmandu, July 12 : Nepali Congress leaders on Saturday said that the incidents that have occurred in the Constituent Assembly (CA) in connection with the demands raised by the Madhesi leaders have taken a serious turn.
According to Kantipur, during the party's central secretariat meeting at the PM's official residence, the leaders claimed that the Maoists have made some secret agreements with the Madhes-based parties.
Nepali Congress Vice-President and Minister for Peace and Reconstruction Ram Chandra Poudel said that the Madhes-based parties allowed the CA proceedings to move on only after reaching agreements with the Maoists.
He went on to claim that the remarks made by the leaders of the Madhesi parties and the Maoists were issues of concern.
The Nepali Congress called the central secretariat meeting to inform their CA members about the latest political development in the country.
Nepali Congress CA member Narayan Khadka said that the party leadership failed to understand the sentiments of hundreds of thousands of party cadres.
Likewise, other CA members suggested the party leadership needed to play a more effective role.
