Kathmandu, January 10

Despite voices of dissent within the party, the Province 3 parliamentary party of ruling Nepal Communist Party has decided to vote for naming the province as Bagmati and retaining Hetaunda of Makawanpur district as the provincial capital.

A meeting of the party held on Friday made the decision, according to the party’s chief whip Rameshwar Phuyal. Earlier, the party’s central secretariat had directed the provincial committee to go for naming the province Bagmati and keeping its capital in Htaunda.

Some lawmakers and leaders of the party, however, have opposed the decision. Different voices have been heard about both the name and the capital. Phuyal says the dissatisfied lawmakers also registered their differences during the meeting today.

The Provincial Assembly will decide the name and the capital. Two-thirds lawmakers can make the decision and the NCP commands that majority.
