Kathmandu, July 3
Two chairpersons of the ruling Nepal Communist Party held talks over resolving the recently seen differences between them, continuously for three hours. They, however, failed to find any result.
KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal held the meeting at the prime minister’s residence from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, and departed after an agreement to continue the discussion tomorrow, according to sources.
Bishnu Paudel from the Oli side and Janardan Sharma from the Dahal side had also joined the meeting. “The two chairpersons held the meeting cordially. The prime minister has called Dahal for another meeting before the standing committee meeting tomorrow,” one of them told Onlinekhabar after the meeting.
The standing committee meeting has been scheduled for 11 am tomorrow.
Earlier this morning, the second-generation leaders of the party had urged the top leaders to hold talks and stop the ongoing blame game in order to save the party unity. Of late, many have feared the party was on the verge of a split.
However, after the meeting between the two chairs, some leaders feel they are assured about retaining the party though no results have come out yet.
