KATHMANDU, March 31: The rival faction led by Dr Shekhar Koirala within the ruling Nepali Congress (NC) has said that they will not give names of the ministers until the participation of their faction in the cabinet is dignified.

We have also informed this to Prime Minister Dahal,” said NC Joint General Secretary Jeevan Pariyar, a leader of the rival faction within the NC.
