KATHMANDU, July 11:Senior leader of the ruling CPN-UML, Madhav Kumar Nepal directed the members of a task force not to use any word in the draft of the agreement that may influence the court.

Nepal, who is also leading the dissident faction of the party, asked the members close to him to use the language of consensus and agreement.

According to sources, Nepal objected to the use of terminologies which are likely to influence 'the Supreme Court' which is preparing to issue its final verdict on the House dissolution case.

A member of the 10-member panel, formed to 'sort out the party's difference', said party Chairman Oli is desperate to 'forge consensus' before the court order while Nepali is not in a mood to make any agreement 'in a hurry.'

Nepal is reportedly making his utmost efforts to ensure his strong position in the party, meaning revocation of sole authority assigned to Oli.

Following a meeting on Saturday evening, the leaders claimed that they would finalize the deal on Sunday morning, which, however, couldn't happen.

Once Oli and Nepal reach the agreement, it will be made public after the meeting of the task force. The deal will then be endorsed by the party's standing committee meeting today itself, said UML central office secretary Sher Bahadur Tamang.
