"The government could run into snags at future peace talks because it is neither independent nor elected. Its main function is to act as a supporting team to His Majesty. There may have been attempts to include all sides in the proposed government-Maoists talks, but I don't think the government felt the need to include political parties. A conducive environment needs to be created before incorporating parties into the process. They are not likely to join talks in response to a call by the government. We demand a democratic constitutional process."
