The main opposition Nepali Congress has become a divided house once again. This is happening at a time when the country needs a united voice in the opposition front to check the government’s wrongdoings and to play the role of a constructive opposition.

The main opposition Nepali Congress is a divided house once again. There is war of words between party president Sher Bahadur Deuba and Koirala faction, most notably Dr Shekhar Koirala and Dr Shashank Koirala.  Party president says one thing about government’s decision, his spokesperson soon opposes it and party president then changes his position. District presidents are appealing for timely General Convention, which Deuba seems bent on deferring.  Why is Congress in such mess? What is its reading of the government’s performance?
