UDMF advises govt to make favorable environment for talk

KATHMANDU — The agitating United Democratic Madhesi Front on Thursday said that the government was not serious about finding a negotiated settlement of the agendas set forth by agitating forces.

Responding to a call for talks from Deputy Prime Minister Kamal Thapa, the parties under the UDMF banner sent their reply to the prime minister.

The UDMF wrote a letter to the prime minister yesterday saying the government spoiled the environment for talks by deceptively indicting Madhesi leaders and cadres subjecting them to torture, and unless that was corrected, there will be no relevance for talks.

The UDMF said it was always ready to sit for meaningful dialogue and forge consensus, but the government must build conducive environment for the same.

“The government should immediately make an environment for talks. We can’t accept that the government is serious about seeking a consensus through talks as long as it does not prepare the necessary environment,” stated the letter.

UDMF has also objected seriously to the leadership of the high-level political mechanism for resolving differences over province delineations.

The front said that the Coordinator of the political mechanism formed to settle issues related to provincial boundaries himself was negative about republicanism, federalism, proportional inclusion and secularism and the mechanism had no terms of reference.

“The government has never shown seriousness in addressing this agenda as the prime minister himself dismissed talks in this connection on February 16 although we had already sat for 36 rounds of talks at different levels,” the letter further states.

The front said it had held 36 rounds of negotiation with the government and major parties but those negotiations produced no results. The UDMF accused PM Oli of unilaterally breaking off negotiations on February 16.
