Dahal reaches Baluwatar ahead of NCP's Standing Committee meeting

KATHMANDU: Co-chairperson of ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Pushpa Kamal Dahal has reached Prime Minister's official residence in Baluwatar for the second time today, this time ahead of the meeting of the Standing Committee.

Dahal left for Baluwatar upon holding consultations with top leaders of the party at his Khumaltar residence to conduct the SC meeting following Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli's decision to dissolve the House of Representatives.

Earlier in the day, Dahal visited Baluwatar in a failed attempt to talk to Prime Minister Oli ahead of the Cabinet meeting wherein the recommendation was forwarded.

The SC meeting is expected to take some decision surrounding the PM's sudden Sunday move.
