KATHMANDU, Sept 15: The ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has issued orders to the institutions and organisations set up in the name of the party’s leaders not to carry out any activities.
The NCP ordered a halt in the activities of the foundations, academies, study centres or organisations named after the party’s leaders, both living and dead, by issuing Intra-party Directives-5.
As per the directives, these organizations and institutions are barred from constituting any branch or conducting activities at the province, district and local levels.
The directives from the party come in the context of complaints that most of these organizations and institutions named after the party’s leaders were involved in groupism and factionalism within the party.
However, the prohibition does not apply to the central level organisations. Organisations have been set up in the name of party leaders, Late Pushpa Lal Shrestha, Late Man Mohan Adhikari, Late Tulsilal Amatya, Late Madan Bhandari, Late Jeevraj Ashrit, Late Nara Bahadur Karmacharya, Late Nirmal Lama, Late Suresh Wagle, Late Krishna Sen Ichhuk, Late Motidevi, Late Sahana Pradhan and Jhalanath Khanal, among others.
Among these organisations, some have opened their branches in the districts while some are confined to the centre only.
