Kathmandu, July 14
Two chairpersons of the ruling Nepal Communist Party have held a meeting in Kathmandu on Tuesday. However, they did not make any progress in resolving the dispute between them.
“KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal discussed various issued for around one hour, but did not make any conclusion,” a source privy to the meeting says, “They are likely to hold another round of meeting tomorrow.”
Owing to a dispute between the two leaders, the party’s ongoing standing committee meeting has been postponed till coming Friday.
When the meeting began last month, Dahal and a majority of the standing committee had demanded that Oli resign both as the prime minister and the party chair. Oli, however, has been refusing to budge, pushing the party into a standstill.
Since then, Oli and Dahal have met several times, mostly one-on-one, but to no avail.
