Peace committee



KATHMANDU - The government has made changes in the structure of the High-level Peace Committee (HPC) formed under the prime minister. The Council of Ministers has approved a proposal that allows the ruling parties to send a minister to advise. "To assist the committee, the Nepali Congress (Democratic), CPN-UML and Rashtriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) can each send one of their ministers," said a highly-placed government source. The source also said that another sub-committee is being formed which will work under the Democratic Coordination Committee, which includes Deuba, UML general secretary Madhab Kumar Nepal, RPP chairman Pashupati Shumsher Rana and Nepal Sadbhabana Party chairman and Forest Minister, Badri Prasad Mandal. The sub-committee's job will be to settle minor issues so that the committee doesn't foment controversy. Apparently, the prime minister has asked the alliance leaders to send in names for the committee. Sources claim that NC(D)'s Minendra Rijal, UML's Bhim Rawal, RPP's Khemraj Pandit and Amrita Agrahari from NSP are set to be brought into the committee. (Nepalnews.com Translation Service
