May 18, 2017, 2:45 p.m.

Senior leaders of Nepali Congress said that that the second phase of polls would be held as planned on June 14, rejecting a proposal from the agitating Madhesi parties to postpone the vote.

In a meeting with top leaders of the Rastriya Janata Party Nepal, NC leaders said that the election would be held on the scheduled date at any cost and suggested the agitating parties remain prepared for it.

 "There are two choices: immediately table the amendment bill in parliament for a vote or wait until there's enough support in favor of the bill. We are ready to do whatever the agitating parties want," said Deuba, adding that the agitating parties should come on board the polls without any more preconditions.

According to a local media report, along with Deuba, other NC leaders Ram Chandra Paudel, Prakash Man Singh, and Bimalendra Nidhi were also present at the meeting.
