KATHMANDU, March 23: A meeting of the Provincial Parliamentary Party of the CPN (Maoist Center) is being held in Lumbini Province. After the election of the President and Vice President, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal took the vote of confidence, while the discussion of government change is going on, the Maoist Center Lumbini meeting is going to be held, according to Indrajit Tharu, who is a minister from the Maoist Center in the provincial government. The meeting will be held at 12PM in Bhairawa.

He said that although there will be a discussion on  leaving the province  government in the meeting, no decision will be made today.

"According to the new alliance, the process of changing the government in Lumbini will not start until the center takes a decision on the chief ministers of all the seven provinces," he said, "We will not leave the government until the process starts." 

On the other hand, Nepali  Congress (NC) and other parties of the alliance are waiting for the decision of the Maoist Center.

In the second week of February, the CPN-UML left the Dahal-led government after the CPN (Maoist Center) supported the Nepali Congress in the presidential election. After the collaboration with the UML was broken, a new alliance was formed with Maoist Center, NC and other small parties.

Prime Minister Dahal has also taken a vote of confidence from the House of Representatives after the UML and RPP left the government led by him.

UML's Leela Giri is the chief minister in Lumbini province. Maoist Center and other parties are still in the government.

The Maoist Center has prepared to withdraw its support to the chief minister of Lumbini Province, Leela Giri. 

The Maoist Center is preparing to withdraw its support to the government from the same meeting. Maoist Center Lumbini Provincial Assembly Parliamentary Party Leader Jokh Bahadur Mahara said that the withdrawal of support to the government will be discussed in today's meeting. "With the change in the power equation, we are discussing the issue of withdrawing our support to the government in today's meeting," Mahara said.
