Manahari (Makawanpur), Feb 26: The political parties of the Bagmati province have agreed to pick leadership of parliamentary (province assembly) committees within mid-March. 

The consensus was reached at an all-party meeting held on Sunday. The meeting formed a task force under the leadership of the chief whip of the Nepali Congress for the purpose. 

Nepali Congress Bagmati province parliamentary party's chief whip Govinda Lamsal has been entrusted as the coordinator of the taskforce. 

The task force has been instructed to prepare the report after necessary consultation within 10 days. 

Though all parties remained positive about running the province assembly meeting, the all-party meeting did not come up with a concrete decision to that end. 

The all-party meet was postponed in a way to hold another meeting at 8.00 am on February 27 when it could not forge any consensus on the resumption of parliamentary operations. 

The meeting tomorrow is expected to make efforts to patch up the conflict between the ruling and opposition parties. 

Bagmati province chief minister Shalikram Jammakattel informed that the all-party meeting held on Sunday could not find consensus points on several contentious issues, including parliamentary operation. 

Likewise, main opposition CPN-UML's Bagmati province parliamentary party leader Jagannath Thapaliya said efforts were underway to build consensus. (RSS)
