KATHMANDU, Feb 13: Finance Minister Bishnu Poudel, a key leader of the Oli-led faction of Nepal Communist Party (NCP), said that the party has not split and it won’t split.
Addressing a mass gathering organized by the party in Butwal, Poudel stressed that only a few leaders against the party unity have left and that does not amount to split.
Poudel also maintained that the Oli-led faction will get the official recognition as Nepal Communist Party (NCP). He urged one and all to begin preparation for the midterm election scheduled for April 30 and May 10. “No force can stop the poll and we will win the election with the highest majority,” he said.
Oli-led faction is organizing similar gatherings in Biratnagar, Pokhara, Janakpur and Surkhet in the days to come.
