LAHAN — Manish Kumar Suman, General Secretary of the protesting Sadbhawana Party, a constituent of the protesting Federal Alliance, said the letter received from the government on Sunday for resumption of negotiations had been viewed in a positive light.
In a briefing with journalists this morning, Suman said the Alliance would hold a meeting and come up with a substantive standpoint regarding the government proposal.
The leader said the Alliance would remain prepared for relevant and result-oriented dialogues.
“The Alliance wants an outlet through dialogues and negotiations, the agitation prolonged because the government is not serious,” he stressed.
Suman added that the Alliance was waiting for the government’s preliminary response on its 11-point demand including treatment of agitators injured in the Madhes uprising, martyrs’ status to the deceased and withdrawal of cases against the demonstrators.
“We will sit for dialogues as soon as the government comes up with the statement” he shared.
Man divorces wife just 15 minutes after Islamic marriage in Dubai
A man in Dubai divorced his bride just 15 minutes after their Islamic marriage as he felt ‘insulted’ by her father’s bride price demands.
The man agreed to pay his new father-in-law Dh100,000 for their wedding but the older man became impatient to get the cash, DailyMail reported.
According to Gulf News, family members and friends accompanied the couple to a Sharia judge’s office to witness the marriage contract being signed. The groom then gave Dh 50,000 on the spot as agreed, with the rest to come after the party left the court building, according to Gulf News.
But, the bride’s father demanded the remaining cash as soon as the signing was over, even though the groom didn’t have it on him.
He said it would only take five minutes to walk to his car, which was parked outside, and get the rest of the bride price.
Instead of letting him retrieve it, the father insisted him to pay either right then or send a friend or relative to get the money while he stayed inside.
The groom felt insulted and demeaned by the series of demands and called off the marriage immediately, a lawyer handling the case said.
‘He told the bride’s father that he did not want his daughter as his wife and divorced her in less than 15 minutes from signing the marriage contract,’ he said.Follow @gorkhapost
