KATHMANDU, Nov 25: The Nepal Student Union, student wing of the Nepali Congress (NC), today staged a sit-in at the NC party office to put pressure on the leadership to create an environment conducive to convene its 12th General Assembly.
"It has been more than two years since its previous 11th assembly was organised. But there is not any indication that the Assembly is going to be organised soon," said NSU leader Dipak Bhattarai to Rastriya Samachar Samiti. He also accused the leadership of delaying Assembly by extending two month's deadline even without consultation with the NSU. "Over two years have elapsed, how we can believe the Assembly will be convened in the next two months?" he said. The meeting of the NC central working committee held on November 17 extended two month's deadline to organise the Assembly.
Meanwhile, the NC central working committee meeting is going on at the party central office. The meeting will discuss the party statute draft to be discussed in the NC Mahasamiti meeting which is scheduled for December 14-18 in the Capital, said a NC leader. RSS
