Throughout the press meet Dahal seemed in a great hurry and kept looking at his watch. Reportedly, PM Bhattarai was constantly calling Dahal from the special committee meeting. After half an hour Dahal, left his residence in a hurry but to the surprise of the journalists who were still being served refreshments, in came Indian Ambassador Jayant Prasad followed by former NC lawmaker Amresh Kumar Singh.
Not surprisingly, Dahal was back at Lajimpat leaving Bhattarai and the special committee stranded. After being told about the Indian Ambassador's unannounced visit, PM Bhattarai stopped calling and Dahal paid full attention to Prasad.
