Bharatiya Janata Party Kathmandu, June 22 (ANI): CPN (UML) leader KP Sharma Oli has said that the Maoists would join the government within two months.Speaking to journalists at Tribhuvan International Airport here on Sunday on his arrival after completing his ten-day visit to India, Oli said the peace process would not succeed without the participation of Maoists.

Oli has adopted a conspicuously soft approach towards the Maoists after his India visit.

Oli had met with senior Indian leaders from Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party, Communist leaders and top bureaucrats.

“I told them that there was no anti-Indian movement in Nepal, Oli added.
