Nepali Congress discipline panel receives complaints against Deuba, Koirala

L-R: Sher Bahadur Deuba and Shekhar Koirala

Kathmandu, August 2

The discipline committee of the main opposition Nepali Congress has received complaints against party president Sher Bahadur Deuba and influential leader Shekhar Koirala. The panel, however, is yet to decide about any action against the two leaders.

Deuba has been accused of telling voters to cast votes on other symbols except the party’s election symbol, tree, in Bharatpur metropolitan city of Chitwan district. In the city, the party had partnered with then CPN-Maoist Centre in the local elections in 2017 without officially withdrawing the candidacy of its official candidate.

Likewise, the complainant has claimed that Koirala was elected a Central Working Committee member in the party’s 12th general convention without meeting required qualifications for the position. The party statute requires a CWC member candidate to be active in party for 10 years, but Koirala did not have spent 10 years in the party when he elected the CWC member in 2010, the complaint claims.
