The meeting of three major parties with the agitating Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJP) has started at the Office of Prime Minister and Council of Minister in Singha Durbar Wednesday afternoon.

Prime Minister (PM) Sher Bahadur Deuba had proposed postponement of local election in provinces 2 and 5 to accommodate Rastriya Janata Party Nepal during the meeting of four major parties on Tuesday. The parties had agreed in the meeting to negotiate with RJP today.

The RJP on Tuesday started protest programs including general strike to disrupt the local election scheduled for June 28. The party is adamant it will not participate in the second round of local election if the constitution were not amended and number of local units not added in tarai in proportion to the population there.
