Kathmandu, Sep 5 (UNI) A few days before his official visit to India, CPN-Maoist Central Committee members have urged Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal not to reach any agreement that would be against the country's interest, media reports said here today.

''The Committee members asked Mr Dahal to put forward a proposal of scrapping all lopsided treaties with India,'' Kantipur reported quoting the Maoists leaders as saying during the meeting with the Prime Minister at his residence in Baluwatar today.

''The visit should not be limited to mere formality,'' the members advised the PM to focus on the nation's interests during talks with his Indian counterpart.

Kantipur said the members suggested the Finance Minister to come up with a progressive budget that will leave its mark on the people.

The members said the failure to come up with such a budget will not prove the significance of the Maoists leading the government.

Saying that transparency was not maintained while appointing ministers from the party, some members criticised the leadership.

Mr Dahal, meanwhile, presented a political review of all events, following the presidential elections and formation of the Maoists-led government.

He said the government policies and programmes, upcoming budget and matters for his India visit will be prepared taking into account all the suggestions.

Mr Dahal is visiting India from September 14 to 18 during which he is expected to discuss various issues including the floods and the Treaty of 1950 signed between the two countries.
