Prachanda and talks about Kings resignation - Report from BBC

Prachanda has told the BBC that he has received positive indications from the palace towards his proposals for talks about the Kings departure.

However, he insisted that the talks could only be about ways of ending the monarchy and the king should be clear about that.

"If the king does not respect the people's verdict and thinks of some mischief, that will harm himself, his offspring and the country as well. I hope he will not take any foolish measures."

Prachanda said he hoped the king would "voluntarily resign" on the day of the first sitting of the assembly, which is expected to implement an earlier decision to turn Nepal into a republic.

Prachanda said, that would be an examplary gesture from the king to help build a "new Nepal".
