Kathmandu, February 11
Two chairpersons of the ruling Nepal Communist Party–Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal–held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss pending issues of the party unification.

The leaders had not met after the meeting owing to Oli’s health problems.
A source privy to the meeting says the two leaders also discussed other contemporary political issues such as the debate within the party about the Millennium Challenge Corporation grant offered by the United States and the appointment of the new Nepal Police chief.
