UML forms nine departments, Oli to lead School Department
KATHMANDU, Aug 3: A Standing Committee meeting of the CPN (UML) nominated members to different nine central departments of the party.
The meeting held at the Chysal-based Tulsi Lal Memorial Foundation on Monday nominated only six to fifteen members in the committees for the time being with an expectation that the dissenting side of the party would return to the party though there is a provision of nominating maximum 25 members in the committees, said Party Spokesperson Pradeep Kumar Gyawali.
Gyawali further said that the party would now be taken ahead with a new pace. The party has already assigned the responsibilities of the chiefs of the Departments.
The Standing Committee meeting nominated members to the Party's School Department (Chief: KP Sharma Oli), Organisation Department (Chief: Bishnu Prasad Poudel), Publicity Department (Chief: Pradeep Kumar Gyawali), Parliamentary Department (Chief: Subas Nembang), Economic Department (Chief: Bishnu Rimal), Tourism Promotion Department (Chief: Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal), Foreign Department (Chief: Dr Rajan Bhattarai), Local-Level Department (Chief: Agni Kharel) and Election Department (Chief: Devendra Dahal).
The CPN (UML) has called its central committee meeting for August 8 to hold discussion regarding the proposed statute. A taskforce has been formed under coordination of party Chairperson KP Sharma Oli to prepare a draft of a political report to be submitted in the statute convention and a taskforce under coordination of general-secretary Ishwor Pokharel to prepare an organizational report.
Similarly, the Statute General Convention Management Taskforce has been formed under coordination of party standing committee member Ram Bahadur Thapa. The UML has released a schedule to hold ward-level conventions across the nation in the third week of September and local-level committees in the last week of September.
Responding to queries of journalists, Spokesperson Gyawali said today's verdict of the Supreme Court of approving the action against four members of Karnali Province including Prakash Jwala, who gave a vote of confidence to Chief Minister of CPN (Maoist Centre), Mahendra Bahadur Shahi, on April 16 against party's direction, was right.
