Janakpurdham, February 16
Parties in the Province 2 Assembly have failed to reach consensus on the new name of the party on Sunday also, apparently because the ruling parties remained adamant.
During a meeting convened by Speaker Saroj Kumar Yadav today, representatives of the two opposition parties–Nepal Communist Party and Nepali Congress–said they were ready to incorporate the term ‘Madhesh’ in the names they proposed earlier.
Whereas the NCP had proposed ‘Janaki’ and the NC ‘Mithila-Bhojpura’ earlier, the parties said they could accept ‘Janaki Madhes’ and ‘Mithila Madhes’ respectively as the ruling Samajwadi Party and Rastriya Janata Party Nepal were obsessed with the term ‘Madhes’.
Yet, the ruling side did not accept either the NCP or the NC’s proposals and demanded that the province be named ‘Madhes’ only.
The speaker will continue the meeting on Monday also.
