Kathmandu, August 2
Five days after one of the two chairmen of the ruling Nepal Communist Party, KP Sharma Oli, postponed the scheduled standing committee meeting of the party unilaterally, another chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal met him on Sunday.
The two leaders discussed the dispute between them, but could not make any progress towards a solution.
When the party’s standing committee meeting began on June 24, Dahal had demanded Oli’s resignation from the positions of party chair and prime minister, accusing him of failure. Oli, however, has been refusing to give up even one position, leading the party to the months-long stalemate. Following the dispute, the standing committee meeting has been repeatedly postponed without discussing any item of the set agenda.
During the meeting today, Oli and Dahal were accompanied by Subas Chandra Nembang and Jhala Nath Khanal respectively. Sources say they have agreed to meet again on Monday.
