Kathmandu,14 June 2017 . Showing the reason it would be difficult to hold the second phase local elections without bringing the agitating Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) on board, the government has indirectly proposed deferring the polls now scheduled for June 28. Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, had called a meeting to discuss the polls in view of anti-poll activities carried out by the RJPN in various plains districts. During a meeting of top leaders of the major political parties held at Singha Durbar on Tuesday, ruling party top leaders circuitously proposed deferring the polls, citing various problems in holding the election if RJPN is not on board. After the meeting, Chairman of main opposition CPN-UML, K P Sharma Oli, said that the ruling parties had indirectly proposed deferring the poll. 'They kept saying there were difficulties to conduct second phase of local level election. But they did not speak directly. They did not do so even when I asked them.
