Kathmandu, July 5
Two chairpersons of the Nepal Communist Party have begun another round of talks to resolve the ongoing differences between them about leading the party and the government, on Sunday afternoon.
Other party leaders say this round of talks is ‘decisive’ as it will decide whether the NCP, formed after the merger of the then CPN-UML and the CPN-Maoist Centre led by Oli and Dahal respectively in 2018, will split again.
The meeting is ongoing at the prime minister’s residence in Baluwatar. Oli and Dahal have been accompanied by two leaders of each side. Oli has called Bishnu Paudel and Shankar Pokhrel to give him company whereas Janardan Sharma and Barsha Man Pun are with Dahal.
Before the meeting, Dahal, accompanied by former prime ministers Madhav Kumar Nepal and Jhala Nath Khanal, had met President Bidya Devi Bhandari this morning.
Of late, Dahal, Nepal, and Khanal have demanded that Oli failed in leading both the party and the government, urging him to leave both the positions, but Oli is adamant against the demand. It has created a fear among the party leaders and cadres about the possible split.
