Maoist, UML mend fences
CPN (Maoist) and Unified Marxist Leninist (UML) have agreed to give a "final shape" to the Army Integration Special Committee (AISC) at the earliest by persuading Nepali Congress (NC) to participate in it.
A meeting between the senior leaders of the two coalition partners at the Prime Minister's Residence in Baluwatar Sunday also reached an agreement to appoint former UML general secretary Madhav Kumar Nepal as the coordinator of the High Level Coordination Committee formed to advise the government on running its affairs.
Maoist leader Mohan Vaidya told a local radio station that there has also been agreement to immediately set up Land Reform Commission and State Restructuring Commission.
He said that there was discussion on kick starting the army integration at the earliest after giving a final shape to AISC.
There was also agreement to do away with the misunderstanding and animosity that exists between the two parties including the increase in clashes between the youth forces of the two parties, it has been learnt.
