KATHMANDU, Nov 10: Executive chairman of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP), Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Tuesday asked the other Chairman and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to call the meeting of the party's Secretariat on coming Thursday.

Chairman Dahal visited Oli at the latter’s official residence at Baluwatar in the capital earlier on Tuesday before five of the nine members of the party’s Secretariat held a discussion at the party headquarters at Dhumbarahi. As PM Oli is visiting the Kimathanka area on Wednesday, Dahal was seeking the former’s consent to call the meeting on Thursday.

NCP Spokesperson Narayan Kaji Shrestha shared that PM Oli, however, did not give his nod to Dahal’s proposal.

Responding to questions about the rival faction’s next move if PM Oli dismissed the proposal to call the meeting on Thursday, Shrestha said that they are hopeful that such a situation will not come. 

Earlier the Secretariat members of the rival faction had submitted a written letter with the agendas to be discussed, requesting Oli to hold the meeting at the earliest.

Chairman Dahal visited Oli at a time when the intraparty rift within the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has reached its peak. He called the party’s Secretariat meeting on Tuesday afternoon without Oli’s consent as the latter did not call a meeting of the crucial party body even as the two-day deadline given to him to do so expired on Monday.
