The meeting, terming the understanding 'historic' in context of the leftist alliance, decided to be dedicated towards its implementation.
Talking to media after the meeting, party Secretary Pradeep Gyawali said there was no need for any political party to fear the alliance. "The leftist alliance should not be accused as totalitarianism or authoritarianism," he asserted.
