After the meeting, leader of the UCPN (Maoist), Narayankaji Shrestha, said that the meeting has decided to make the ongoing talks decisive by August 16.

Similarly, senior leader of the Nepali Congress, Sher Bahadur Deuba, said that the HLPC would hold talks with the fronts led by Yadav and Rai on Tuesday.

Parties in favor of election will go with a common concept on election and can not wait in talks for long, and we have not thought of postponing election, he said.

UCPN-Maoist leader Shrestha said discussion was held to urge the government if the process can be forwarded as the Truth and Reconciliation Ordinance has come on conflict-era incidents.
