Maoists, UML agree to change ToR of special committee: Rawal

A central leader of Unified Marxist Leninist (UML) has said that his party and the Maoists have agreed to change the Terms of Reference of the special committee on army integration.

Following the meeting between the high-level mechanism of the two parties, Thursday, UML leader Bhim Rawal said, "We did not find big difference between the current ToR and the seven-point agreement reached a few months ago. But there were some differences, which we decided should be corrected so that the ToR is completely in line with the agreement among the parties."

The decision to change the ToR was made in order to attract the main opposition Nepali Congress (NC) to join the special committee.

"The NC, too, has been saying that the special committee should be in line with the seven point agreement," Rawal said.

Owing to the non participation in the committee by NC, it has not been able to start its function.
