Kathmandu, April 26
The ruling Nepal Communist Party’s vice-chairperson Bamdev Gautam has commented that some media wrongly reported the contents of his discussion with the party chairman, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, on Saturday.
He has suggested that he did not advise Oli to resign as reported in the media.
In his statement on Sunday, Gautam says he, however, suggested that the party chair should immediately call meetings of the party’s secretariat and standing committee as demanded by various leaders of the party in the wake of recent political controversies.
“Even after the annulment of two ordinances, there are many problems in the party,” the influential leader’s statement reads, “These problems cannot be solved by bypassing the party and party committees. The prime minister should directly discuss the issues and face all kinds of thoughts.”
