KATHMANDU, March 7: In what appears to be a severe blow to both factions of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP), the Supreme Court (SC) has scrapped the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) registered in the name of KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, giving the party to little-known Rishi Kattel who had registered Nepal Communist Party at the Election Commission much before the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) was registered in the names of Oli and Dahal in May 2018.
