KATHMANDU, March 17: On Wednesday, 75 current and former office-bearers of liaison committees around the world wrote a letter to the Prime Minister and President of the Nepali Congress, Sher Bahadur Deuba, urging him to make an environment for consensus and prevent split in Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA).
Nepali liaison committees abroad have been outraged after former president of the NRNA, Shesh Ghale, convened a separate conference in support of some pro-Nepali Congress leaders and activists abroad.
In the letter, they have urged the PM to emphasize on bringing consensus on the dispute over the selection of the General Convention delegates of the organization and stop the activities done by both sides related to general convention and election.
They have also emphasized protecting the organization that acts as a hope of Nepali people living abroad that is on the verge of division due to the conflict over the selection of delegates for the 10th General Convention of the International Coordinating Council of NRNA and the World Conference General Convention.
Likewise, they have urged to create an atmosphere for the General Convention by quilling all kinds of activities that would divide the organization instead of uniting the people.
The establishment side of the NRNA has set the date for the association's election on March 24 and 25, while the Ghale group has announced to hold a conference in Kathmandu from March 23 to 25. Dr Badri KC and Ravina Thapa are in the fray for the leadership while Kul Acharya did not register his candidature.
