KATHMANDU, Dec 26:  Co-chairman of Nepal Communist Party Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Wednesday proposed to set up an intra-party taskforce in a bid to finalize the party's much-delayed unification process in district level and various sister organizations by mid-January.

Dahal made the remark while responding to queries raised by standing committee members over a political report jointly presented by him and another Chairman KP Sharma Oli at the party's standing committee meeting last week.

According to Dahal's proposal, such a taskforce could be entrusted to prepare criterion and finalize the unification process in district level and various sister organizations by mid-January.

NCP standing committee member Yogesh Bhattarai, who participated in the meeting, told Republica Online that no decision has been made with regards to Dahal's proposal.

Dahal's proposal comes at a time when the party's unification process in district level and various sister organization has not taken place even ten months after the merger and unification between the two communist parties—CPN (UML) and CPN Maoist Centre.

Speaking at the meeting, Dahal stressed the need for strengthening the party's internal unity. "I believe that no forces can weaken the party's internal unity if there is strong unity among us," he told the party leaders adding that the party should run based on the spirit of consensus.

Talking about the existing system of having two chairmen in the party, Dahal said that the two chairmen are committed to make the party stronger. "There is no any misunderstanding between us. Sometimes the two chairmen may be on good terms and sometimes not, I take it naturally," Dahal said.

Saying that the country is marching ahead towards the era of socialist revolution, the co-chairman added that the ruling NCP is bearing a historic task of the country's socio-economic transformation.

Mentioning about the Oli-led government's performance, Dahal said "There are some weaknesses on the part of the government. However, it has also made some important achievements. So, we have to move ahead correcting the mistakes and weaknesses."   

The third NCP standing committee meeting lasted for two hours that began at 8:35 am on Wednesday at the Dhumbarahi-based party headquarters. Co-chairman KP Sharma Oli is scheduled to respond queries raised by the party leaders in the upcoming standing committee meeting  slated for 3 pm on Thursday.
