Kathmandu, October 10

Nepali Congress leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula has forced the party leadership to postpone the meeting of its Central Working Committee scheduled for Thursday.

Party President Sher Bahadur Deuba postponed the meeting after Sitaula and some leaders close to him warned of boycotting the meeting, and creating some ‘untoward’ situations if the meeting was held despite settling the issue they raised.

Sitaula has protested the party’s decision to fixing the age limit for the party’s student wing, Nepal Students Union, at 32 years.

Earlier, the party’s General Secretary Purna Bahadur Khadka had tried to convince Sitaula to join the meeting. In response, Sitaula had suggested that Deuba should not be ‘foolish’ by taking all decisions on the majority basis, by ignoring dissident voices.

Some other leaders including Prakash Man Singh and Arjun Narsingha KC had also warned of boycotting the meeting.
