UML withdraws disciplinary actions taken against four leaders including Madhav Nepal
KATHMANDU, May 13: The ruling CPN-UML has withdrawn actions which were taken against four leaders of the party.
A Standing Committee meeting held at Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s official residence in Baluwatar, Kathmandu decided to withdraw its earlier decision to suspend party’s senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, Bhim Rawal, Surendra Pandey and Ghanashyam Bhusal.
“The decision was taken to save party unity,” said Subash Nembang, UML’s deputy parliamentary party leader.
The meeting also entrusted party Chairman KP Oli to hold negotiations and take necessary decisions regarding the concerns raised by the dissident faction led by leader Nepal.
UML’s decision to withdraw suspension of four leaders comes at a time when lawmakers of the dissident faction are preparing to resign en masse.
