Nepali Congress’ general convention has been postponed till November. The central committee meeting on Saturday decided that the general convention will now be held from November 25 to 29, informed central committee member Min Biswakarma.
Previously, the committee had decided to hold the general convention from September 1 to 4. However, due to a dispute within the party regarding active members, NC couldn’t hold it on time.
