KATHMANDU: Representatives of the Far-western region en route to Kathmandu to hold talks with the government have been stranded at Bardiya on Thursday.
A talk team comprising 52 members, including representatives from almost all areas of the region, has been trapped due to bandh in Bardiya called by Nepali Chettri Samaj.
The jumbo talk team was coming to Kathmandu today, sources confirmed, without lifting off the bandh which is on its 14th consecutive day in all 9 districts of the Far-western region.
The government’s team headed by Deputy Prime Minister Krishna Prasad Sitaula, to hold talks with the groups agitating for unified Far-west state, was expecting to commence talks with the Far-west negotiators today.
