Even though the party statue does not have provisions for such as post, the secretariat made the decision and has sent it to the standing committee for approval.
A source close to the party said that PM Oli and Gautam have been holding talks regularly. The two had dinner on Tuesday and talked about settling differences. PM Oli has also requested Gautam to contest for the Kaski – 2 seat that has fallen vacant after the demise of Rabindra Adhikari.
