Consensus eludes Nepal on proposal to sack Army Chief.
Kathmandu, Apr 29 (ANI): The meeting of the major political parties at Singh Durbar on Wednesday morning failed to reach a consensus over the Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) General Rookmangud Katawal row.
However, the three parties - the Communist Party of Nepal- Maoist (CPN-M), the Nepali Congress (NC) and the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist-Leninist (CPN-UML) - decided to meet again for another round of discussion.
After the meeting, NC leaders said that the parties would meet again to reach a conclusion, nepalnews reports.
NC leader Arjun Narsingh KC said his party informed the Maoists about the NC Central Committee's decision to launch protests, if the government sacked the Army Chief.
On Tuesday, Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal met NC President Girija Prasad Koirala and urged him to support the government to sack Katawal. (ANI)
