Kathmandu, Mar 29 (ANI): The UCPN (Maoist) has intensified bilateral discussions with different parties in an attempt to get their support against the current coalition government.

Maoist leaders met Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (MJF) leaders this morning.

After the meeting Maoist leaders claimed that they received support from the MJF to find an alternative to the current coalition.

According to MJF joint coordinator Jayaprakash Prasad Gupta, his party would intensify the agitation against the government, as the current UML-led government is not competent to take the peace process to a logical end.

He informed that his party would also stage demonstrations across during which the party cadres will hoist back flags against the government.

The Maoist leaders also met UML leaders.

During the meeting, the UML leaders have put conditions to support a Maoist-led government. The conditions include transforming UCPN (Maoist) into a civilian party, end of para-military structure of the Young Communist League (YCL) and return of all the properties seized during the insurgency period among others.

UML Chairman Jhala Nath Khanal said the two parties primarily dwelt on formation of a consensus government, leadership of the High Level Political Mechanism, peace process and constitution writing.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has continued his close-door meetings with smaller parties in the parliament, Nepalnews reported. (ANI)
