KATHMANDU, March 25: The Madhav Kumar Nepal-led faction of the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) has called its central committee meeting on Friday to chalk out its strategy amid the heightened dispute within the ruling party owing to factional feud.
According to CPN-UML leaders close to Nepal, the meeting will start at 11AM on Friday at a party venue in the capital. Central committee members (CCMs) who are available in Kathmandu have been asked to join the meeting.
The Oli-led faction has taken a series of actions against the Madhav Kumar Nepal-led faction which was earlier taking side with the Dahal-led faction when the Nepal Communist Party existed until the Supreme Court's verdict to invalidate the NCP.
Despite strong warnings and threats from Chairperson KP Sharma Oli, the Madhav Kumar Nepal-led faction has continued its parallel activities in recent weeks. With growing squabbling between the two factions, the ruling CPN-UML is on the verge of a split.
