Kathmandu, April 23
The internal rift in Nepali Congress-aligned Nepal Students Union has reached its peak on Monday as five of 11 vice-chairpersons of the organisation have filed a complaint with the party President Sher Bahadur Deuba against their organisation’s President Nain Singh Mahar.
Prakash Rana, Khadka Bahadur Dangi, Urmila Thapaliya, Nabin Rai and Sagar Pariyar have also put forth three demands and served a 24-hour ultimatum to meet them.
The first demand is finalising a date for the next general convention of the organisation to elect its new leadership.
They say they will resort to stronger forms of protest including carrying out parallel organisational activities if the demands are not met.
Meanwhile, the disgruntled leaders are also preparing to stage a demonstration at the party’s central office in Sanepa, where the party is holding its Central Working Committee meeting.
