KATHMANDU, Dec 29: The Dahal-Nepal faction of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) is staging a nationwide protest on Tuesday against the dissolution of parliament.

Key leaders of NCP's rival faction have reached various districts to address protest rallies.

As part of their demonstration protest, co-chairs of the faction Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Madhav Kumar Nepal will address a protest rally at the Exhibition Road in the capital in the afternoon.

Likewise, central committee members Surendra Pandey and Khimlal Devkota are going to address a protest rally in Pokhara.

A central committee meeting of the NCP's rival faction on December 24 decided to take to the streets against the government's decision to dissolve parliament.

A 2,501-member ‘agitation mobilization committee’ has been formed to launch protests in various parts of the country, according to NCP Spokesperson Narayankaji Shrestha.

The rival faction will hold the party's assemblies at ward and village levels until December.

The decision of the rival faction of the NCP to stage protests comes days after the party suffered a split last week as they differed on the government's decision to dissolve parliament, amid an already deepened intraparty rift.
