Kathmandu, July 5
Two chairpersons of the ruling Nepal Communist Party have agreed to explore options to find out a consensus between them so as to end the recently surfaced differences.
As many fear that the NCP, formed after the merger of the then CPN-UML and the CPN-Maoist Centre led by KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal respectively in 2018, would split again, Oli and Dahal held talks on Sunday and agreed to find consensus by continuing the talks further.
The two sides have agreed to stop the activities and statements that could widen the differences, informs a leader who was present during the meeting. Ishwar Pokharel, Bishnu Paudel and Shankar Pokhrel had accompanied Oli during the talks whereas Dahal was backed by Janardan Sharma and Barsha Man Pun.
Though the party and the leaders have not made any formal announcement, the top leaders have assigned four other leaders present in the meeting except DPM Pokharel to explore options of the consensus. Based on their suggestions, Oli and Dahal will hold another meeting on Monday morning.
The standing committee meeting of the ruling party had begun around two weeks ago. However, owing to the differences between two sides, the meeting has been postponed till Monday.
