Kathmandu, July 3
A group of second-rung leaders of the ruling Nepal Communist Party has appealed to the party leadership to stop blaming each other and work towards saving the party unity as the differences between two chairpersons, KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, have widened.
As many speculate that the intra-party conflict might lead the party, formed after the merger of then CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre two years ago, towards a split, the leaders considered close to the opposing factions held a joint meeting on Friday morning and appealed to the key leaders for talks to avoid any disaster.
Janardan Sharma, Surendra Pande, Ghanashyam Bhusal, Yogesh Bhattarai, Pradeep Gyawali, Shankar Pokhrel, Barsha Man Pun, Bishnu Rimal, Shakti Basnet, and Mani Thapa came together to urge the seniors for an early solution to the problem. Their meeting this morning has concluded that the party should be saved from splitting at any context.
“We have said there should be a ceasefire,” a leader who attended the meeting says, “We need to stop the ongoing blame game for that.”
The leaders have said the party should gradually explore a model to head to the general convention after the current conflict ends, urging the two chairpersons to lead the conversation.
