Kathmandu - A Standing Committee meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) summoned to discuss intra-party disputes has kicked off at the party’s central office Dhumbarahi, Kathmandu. The party top leaders were said to be sitting for informal talks before the meeting, but no such thing happened. The Saturday’s Secretariat meeting had decided to present the reports presented by both party chairs KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' in a bid to resolve the disputes in the Standing Committee meeting.
The top leaders have involved in disputes regarding the written response presented by Prime Minister and party chair Oli in the November 28 meeting and a proposal presented by another party chair Dahal in the November 13 meeting. Though leaders tried to find a consensus on whether to present the both documents to the Standing Committee and the Central Committee meeting slated for upcoming December 7 jointly or separately, no substantial outcome has been achieved so far.
