GPK calls CC meeting

KATHMANDU: The Nepali Congress president Girija Prasad Koirala has called NC’s informal Central Committee (CC) meeting tomorrow morning at his residence in Maharajgunj.

Sources said that the meeting would highlight the party’s recent high-level meetings with the Unified CPN-Maoist and CPN-UML top brass. Also in the agenda are NC’s bottom-line on the proposed common Sankalpa Prastav to resolve the political stalemate.

“We will also discuss on the current politics, including NC’s Mahasamiti meeting slated for October 31 to November 2 in Birganj and the party’s 12th National General Convention from March 10 to 14, 2010 in Kathmandu,” said Arjun Narsingh K.C., NC spokesperson. The NC CC meeting on August 29 had called the Mahasamiti meeting. But Koirala is pressing hard on the party leaders to cancel it.
