The UML team that was in India is still keeping its "secret meeting" with the Maoists a secret. When Jana Bhawana asked team member Jhalanath Khanal about the meeting, he said that it was completely imaginary. Despite Khanal's denial, our sources maintain that the meeting did take place. Sources say that the UML put forward the possibility of holding a plebiscite on the constitutional monarchy, even as it worked on \'softening' the Congress government. In return, the Maoist leadership would direct its party workers to leave the UML cadres alone and even assist them during the upcoming elections.
