Kathmandu, December 8
Around three weeks after he was appointed the ‘executive’ chairman of the ruling Nepal Communist Party, former prime minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal is revitalising all units of the party at all levels.
Though it has already been more than one year since the then CPN-UML and the CPN-Maoist Centre announced their merger to form the NCP, the party is yet to form various committees. Among the already formed committees, many are yet to function properly.
The nine-member secretariat has been taking decisions about major issues whereas it has been months since the standing committee and the central committee held their meetings. The politburo is yet to be formed.
Likewise, the party has appointed chiefs for 32 internal departments but they are yet to get the full shape. Many sister organisations have not been unified.
In this context, Dahal wants to complete all the tasks related to the unification as soon as possible and launch a nationwide cadre mobilisation campaign, according to sources close to him.
As the first preparatory step, he is likely to call a standing committee meeting. The secretariat meeting scheduled for Monday is expected to fix the standing committee meeting date, according to the party leader Devendra Paudel, who recently met Dahal.
On the eve of the secretariat meeting, Dahal met Madhav Kumar Nepal, Ishwar Pokharel and Bishnu Paudel today to discuss the agenda.
