Rastriya Janata Party Nepal leader Rajendra Mahato says his party is not prepared to join the KP Sharma Oli-led government yet.
The Madheshi leader further clarified that the party will not join the government unless the agreement is reached to amend the constitution to address the demands of the Madhesh movements.
Talking to reporters in Biratnagar, Mahato said that talks with the government can only begin when prosecutors withdraw all charges against Madheshi activists arrested during various movements in on party cadres.
“We will think about joining the government only if they are ready to amend the constitution. I know these things do not happen overnight, but they could at least talk about amendments,” said Mahato. “We will join the government once the ruling party gives us confirmation on the matter,” he added.
