Kathmandu, May 11 (ANI): Madhesi Peoples Rights Forum (MPRF) on Sunday floated the proposal to form the new government prior to the first sitting of the Constituent Assembly (CA).

The MPRF leaders also forwarded the idea that the new government itself should nominate the 26 members for the CA, at a meeting with the Maoist leadership this morning.

MPRF Chairman Upendra Yadav claimed that the present interim government does not have the right to carry out any important task, during the meeting held at Maoist Chairman Prachandas residence.

The new government with the peoples mandate should carry out such important tasks, Yadav added.

Yadav claimed that the Maoist leaders were positive about the proposals forwarded by the MPRF.

The MPRF also presented its earlier stance seeking amendment to the constitutional provision so as to remove the Prime Minister with a simple majority.

The meeting, however, failed to take firm decision regarding the statute amendment, Yadav informed.

Yadav added that the two sides reached an agreement to move ahead ending constitutional and political complexities.

The two sides also stressed on the need to intensify discussions for a national consensus.

Maoist leader Dr. Baburam Bhattarai, MPRF leaders Bijaya Gachhedhar, Mahadev Sah and BP Yadav were present at the meeting.

This is the second meeting between the two parties, which were adversary to each other in the past. (ANI)
