According to Gajurel, another CC member Lila Bahadur Thapa said the leaders holding positions in the party should not be assigned portfolios in the government as it could have a bearing on the smooth functioning of the party.
Chandra Prakash Khanal the Dhobighat meeting (held by Baburam Bhattarai and Mohan Baidhya against Dahal before Bhattarai became the new PM) should be reviewed.
