Three-party meeting at Baluwatar

The scheduled three party meeting on Thursday has been postponed after the UCPN (Maoist) demanded that Prime Minister Sushil Koirala compulsorily attend the meeting. The top leaders of the three major parties were scheduled to hold a meeting at Peace Secretariat at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. The meeting was postponed after the Maoists argued that there is no meaning of such a meeting if the prime minister doesn't attend it. MORE

  • SAARC needs collective measures against terrorism SAARC needs collective measures against terrorism

  • State of denial

    Nanda Parsad Adhikari's painful death has raised a fundamental question to our political / legal system. Is this what we wanted ? What does a " federal democratic republic" means for a common people ?
