Kathmandu, June 7

Internal disputes in the Nepali Congress has come to surface once again as the faction led by senior leader Ram Chandra Paudel has decided not to send any leader as minister in the Cabinet led by party President Sher Bahadur Deuba for now.

Further, the faction has decided to boycott the oath taking ceremony of Deuba claiming he unilaterally picked names of ministers from the party.

Leaders close to Paudel held a meeting this morning and concluded that Deuba did not discuss with them while selecting ministers from the party.

Deuba will take the oath of office and secrecy from President Bidya Devi Bhandari this afternoon.

He is also preparing to form a small Cabinet in the first phase today itself.
