Don't ask for leadership change ahead of polls: NC

A day after the major four communist parties agreed on reshuffling the current cabinet including replacing the government leadership, Nepali Congress has asked not to raise any other issues ahead of the constituent assembly polls.
The party has asked the communists groups to concentrate on holding polls at the earliest to achieve the mandate given by Jana Andolan II.
During an informal meeting of the party leaders held on Saturday morning, NC leaders criticised the Maoists and the UML for raising issue of leadership change that would put the agenda of constituent assembly polls under shadow.
The Congress leaders held the meeting ahead of the seven party meeting to discuss the political impasse. The top leaders of the ruling alliance and the Maoists are scheduled to meet this afternoon to make another round of effort to end the deadlock.
Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala, who attended the meeting briefly, expressed hope of solving the impasse after the meeting of the top leaders.
